Tell us your biotech story!

Are you a #BiotechFan? Submit your short video explaining why and win a trip to Brussels during the European Biotech Week (23 – 29th September 2019)

Who can participate?

Any student, scientist, researcher or biotech enthusiast living in the EU and who is passionate about communicating the benefits of biotech.

Send us your video!

Your video can be as creative, serious or funny as you want it to be! The aim is to explain in a maximum of 2 minutes, in the language of your choice, why biotechnology is so important for you and/or everyone else, using any specific example(s) you find appropriate, from any field of application (such as healthcare, industrial or agricultural biotech). For example, show us what kind of incredible things we can achieve with genome editing and explain why you are passionate about biotech.  What would be your biotech wish for 2020?

During your stay in Brussels, you’ll also be guided through the famous “European Quarter” together with other biotech enthusiasts to meet EU decision makers and influencers and help us illustrate the benefits of biotech.
