ESIB: European Summit of Industrial Biotechnology

The esib - the European platform for communication and networking for industrial biotechnology – is designed to be

  • a stage to meet and talk
  • a pivot for active exchange of news, ideas and trends
  • a hotbed for innovation
  • a cradle for fruitful cooperations
  • a cornerstone of new incentives

esib has already established itself as one of the biggest biotech conferences in Europe and an international platform for industrial biotechnology in multiple contexts. The event not only covers science but also deals with industrial needs and hopes, economic demands, funding resources or political aspirations and still leaves space for networking and recreation. It encourages all protagonists of industrial biotechnology to think outside the box and in new comprehensive dimensions.

At the first event last year, “Design” was the guiding thread. In 2017, the esib focuses on “PRODUCTS & PRODUCTION”.

The program including speakers has finally been released. The program consists of 25 sessions including top-class speakers from science, industry, funding agencies and politics. It is complimented by a unique social program to encourage communication & networking like the Gala Academia on top of the Schlossberg and the Chilling Life Science - everything is already included in the participation fee.

Meet representatives from global key players like BASF, Bayer, Boehringer-Ingelheim, Clariant, DSM, Firmenich, Fresenius, GSK, G.L. Pharma, GE Healthcare, Givaudan, Jungbunzlauer, Lonza, Merck, Novartis, Novozymes, Patheon, Sandoz, Shire, Siemens, Wuxi etc.

Take the opportunity, register now & profit until August 31, 2017 from the early bird registration!
