Join us for the 10th edition of the European Biotech Week (#EBW2022) – an annual Week celebrating biotechnology and highlighting its role in everyday life. This year, the Week will be held from 26 September to2 October 2022 across Europe.
Launched in 2013, EuropaBio’s initiative brings all stakeholders – scientists, companies, academics, students and policymakers – together physically or online to celebrate biotechnology, address challenges for society and industry and find synergies for enhanced collaboration.
‘’EuropaBio is proud to invite, once again, the biotechnology community to join our annual flagship campaign – European Biotech Week. In past years, biotechnology has led the waydelivering bringing innovation, investment and excellence and has contributed immensely to healthier and more sustainable everyday life of European citizens. Biotechnology remains extremely important in addressing global challenges such as climate change and pandemics, and national priorities, such as security of food supply and medicines, that stem from conflict. ’’, said Dr Claire Skentelbery, Director General of EuropaBio.
