On May 10th and 11th you have the great opportunity to get involved with the European bioeconomy and Industrial Biotechnology. The nova-Institut together with partners from the European BioQED-project welcome you to be part of two high-level events directly linked to each other:
BIO-QED stakeholder workshop
May 10th, 2017: starts at 14:00 at the Maternushaus, Cologne, Germany
Exploring new methods to produce important chemicals from renewable sources rather than traditional petrochemical sources, is the aim of the BioQED project, financed by the European Union as part of the Seventh Framework Programme. Involved are 13 partners from 7 countries (Italy, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Croatia, Spain and the USA).
BioQED is on its way to successfully bring products from industrial biotechnology laboratories to the market. Participants get the chance to learn about the advances made by the BioQED consortium in producing bio-based itaconic acid and butanediol. The BioQED stakeholder event offers the possibility to exchange experiences, to discuss interesting topics and to foster future collaborations.
The workshop is organized as a satellite event to the 10th International Conference on Bio-based Materials (BMC), therefore registrants will benefit from the opportunity to grow their network at the stakeholder workshop itself, as well as at the dinner of the Bio-based Material Conference afterwards.
Meet key players of the industry and cast your vote for the “Bio-based Material of the Year“ award.
10th International Conference on Bio-Based Materials
10-11 May 2017, Maternushaus, Cologne
For its 10th anniversary, the International Conference on Bio-based Materials, 10-11 May, Cologne, Germany, has a special focus: Bio-based building blocks and platform chemicals.
The bioeconomy shows double-digit growth in its production capacity. Most investments are going to bio-based building blocks and platform chemicals, which are the core of the bioeconomy. These investments will fuel the development of new building blocks, new bio-based polymers and their use in existing and new applications.
In the tradition of supporting promising technologies and innovative ideas, the Bio-based Materials Conference will feature two items dedicated to this cause: the Start-up Session and the election of the “Bio-based Material of the Year“.
