Save the Date: Why the Bioeconomy needs Synthetic Biology

Synbio Powerhouse Annual Seminar

About the Event

This year the Synbio Powerhouse annual seminar will explore the symbiosis of synthetic biology and the circular bioeconomy. Microbes are uniquely capable to utilise bio waste as feedstock. With the tools of synthetic biology we are able to engineer the microbes to efficiently convert the waste into useful products such as biomaterials, chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

Achieving a truly sustainable use of biomass derived from agriculture, forest or food industry can highly benefit from refining its waste and side streams using biotechnology. What could be done, what is needed and how should be move forward - join us to discuss this hot topic together with industry experts, researchers and policy makers. In our event you will also hear some of the latest finding from novel synbio research.

  • Waste as feedstock
  • Biosynthetic  production
  • Novel Synbio Research

This seminar is part of the official program of the European Biotech week 28.9-1.10.2021.
