European Biotech Week: Celebrating Innovation

The European Biotech Week celebrates biotechnology, an innovative and vibrant sector launched by the discovery of the DNA molecule back in 1953. The first European Biotech Week that took place in 2013 marked the 60th anniversary of this pivotal moment in history.

This momentous occasion opened the door to a better understanding of the world we live in both for scientists and for society.

To provide you with an example, DNA triggered crucial discoveries and deeper knowledge on genes, proteins, viruses, bacteria and stem cells.

Biotech entrepreneurs were able to translate this knowledge into applications for many sectors such as healthcare, agriculture, food, energy, water sanitation and biochemical processing, all of which have changed the world for the better.

Biotech associations are key in helping to maximize the potential of biotechnology. In Europe, the National Associations Council, hosted by EuropaBio, represents 17 national biotech associations that together represent over 1,800 small- and medium-sized biotech companies and organisations.

In 2017, the week takes place between 25 September and 1 October.

  • Identify knowledge gaps that need to be filled, providing a forum for scientific exchanges on recent advances in biotech research.  
  • Global voice – To bring solidarity and cooperation across the profession in collaboration with other stakeholders.

We believe these objectives can be achieved through disseminating workshops, symposiums and open discussion forums happening at our Biotechnology Conference 2018.

Biotechnology:

Biotechnology has emerged through strategic interactions between science and engineering. Biotechnology involves manipulation and engineering, which leads to useful products that can be used in medicine, agriculture, industry, or environmental control.

Biotechnology applications market is divided into biopharmacy, bioservices, bioagriculture and bioindustrial. Biotechnology Technology market has been segmented into fermentation, tissue regeneration, PCR technology, nanobiotechnology, chromatography, DNA sequencing, cell based assay and others. Total Global Biotechnology market will reach a value worth of USD 414.5 billion by the end of 2017.

 The Challenges and Benefits of Biotechnology

The world’s population is expected increase from its current 6.7 billion to over 9 billion by 2050., which leads to more demand for food, clothes, homes, medical facilities and energy. Biotechnology will provide solutions to disease, hunger, pollution and global warming.

Biotechnology helps people and our planet by developing medical treatments for diseases, creating new renewable fuels that reduce the fossil fuels use and producing innovative technologies that protect our global environment.

Increasing Food Security

We need to more than double our current agricultural production levels in order to feed a population of that size. In order to sustainably feed the world, we need to develop farming methods that are environmentally kind and can survive with climate change while increasing the wellbeing of farmers. Agricultural technologies have a number of benefits, including reduced insecticide use, reduced erosion, increased tolerance to environmental disasters such as droughts and floods, and improved nutritional composition that can supplement diets of farmers around the world.

Energy Crisis

Energy demand is projected to grow by 50% by 2025. Majority of energy is currently derived from fossils fuels, a limited, non-renewable and polluting resource. Switching to biofuels for transportation needs would reduce energy dependency on oil imports and could boost rural development, providing farmers with an additional source of income.

Biotechnology will help in developing specific high-yielding energy crops, the impact, efficiency and sustainability of biorefinery facilities which also decrease the cost of biofuels. Biofuels can replace 30% of current transportation energy needs in an environmentally responsible way without affecting global food production with new technology developments

Devastating Diseases

Biotechnologies, and other biomedical innovations, are likely to lead to the production of new and improved vaccines, diagnostics as well as treatments with which to tackle disease. Biotechnology will help improve the understanding of disease, disease pathology, epidemiology, and vector control.

Biotechnology has opened the door to the discovery and development of  new types of human therapeutics. Biotechnology medicines already treat or help prevent heart attacks, stroke, multiple sclerosis, leukemia, hepatitis, congestive heart failure, lymphoma, kidney cancer, cystic fibrosis, and other diseases.

Sustainability is vital as we progress into the future. Biotechnology will help in building a Sustainable World.

Stockholm: European Green Capital, knowledge-intensive and innovative region in the world as our Conference Venue

Stockholm is internationally recognized as one of the most knowledge-intensive and innovative regions in the world and as a leading supplier of solutions and products in key sectors such as Life Science, ICT and Cleantech. Stockholm is the first ever winner of the European Green Capital award and has adopted a unique approach to sustainability where every aspect of environmental, economic and social impact is part of the equation. Or in other words: just about everything that happens in Stockholm does so with sustainability in mind.

Why you should attend conference/lectures

  • To sharpen your skills
  • Meet Experts & Influencers Face to Face
  • Networking Opportunities
  • Learning In a New Space
  • Break Out of Your Comfort Zone
  • New Tips & Tactics
  • The Energy of Like-Minded Individuals
  • The Serendipity of the Random Workshop
  • Invest In Yourself
  • Have Fun

In this digital age, conferences and face-to-face meeting are increasingly being substituted by webinars, video conferences and other forms of digital communication. There are some clear advantages with digital communication such as convenience, cost and time savings. Despite these advantages, the impact of communicating in person is much higher and is backed by scientific evidence. According to a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience, during face-to-face communication, synchronization of brain activity between partners occur leading to successful exchange of information. Besides, frequent eye-contact during face-to-face communication helps build trust between individuals and produce better outcomes such as increased creativity and productivity. Hence, conferences and meetings are necessary even in a world dominated by digital communication channels.
