About the Conference
2nd International Biotechnology Conference (IBCG 2019) is organized by Thinkershub AB. The event is scheduled between 2019 September 11 to 13 at Gothenburg, Sweden. Thinkershub promotes publishing journals, skill development programs, creating research awareness in underdeveloped nations and organizing international conferences. The 2nd International biotechnology conference is organized in Gothenburg to build a collaborative relationship and work toward shared objective of creating sustainable world.
Gothenburg is also one of Europe’s most sustainable hotel cities. Gothenburg is currently home to around 750 different sectors; the equivalent figure for London is around 1,000. Many large cutting-edge companies in industry are also based here: Volvo Cars, Volvo Trucks, SKF, Volvo IT and Ericsson. Other large corporations in the region include Mölnlycke Health Care and Astra Zeneca. Thinkershub IBCG 2019 aims to be the common platform where international scientists, Industrials and Investors from over 20 countries, from diverse disciplines come together to discuss and share ideas and recent developments in biotechnology research and industries. IBCG 2019 Gothenburg is designed to offer latest applied research and development trends, therefore an exciting content is to be anticipated.
Type of sessions
- Keynote Presentations
- Oral Presentations
- Poster sessions
- Young Research Forum
Aim of the conference:
- To discuss the advancing knowledge and latest techniques in fields of biomedicine, crop improvement, renewable chemicals, polymer biotechnology, synthetic biology, novel enzymes, food ingredients, biofuels, environmental protection/remediation, biopharmaceuticals and biopesticide production.
- Sharing of scientific knowledge and experience in all areas of biotechnology and related scientific fields.
- Strengthening and expanding the human network of all involved in this field in Europe, USA, Asia, UK, Sweden and globally.
- Providing opportunities for young researchers for their professional development.
- 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 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 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
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.

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.
