EuropaBio is pleased to announce that the next edition of EFIB, Europe’s Leading Event on Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy under the title ‘Next generation economies: Industrial biotechnology for a sustainable society’, will take place 26-27 October 2022 in Vilnius, Lithuania. The Forum will be hosted by the Lithuanian Biotechnology Association (LBTA) together with Go Vilnius – the city’s official business and tourism development agency.
Now in its 15th year, EFIB will be dedicated to the innovation and commercial delivery of industrial biotechnology and the bioeconomy. EFIB will include a pre-conference science symposium ’’Gene Editing – From Research To Industry’’, followed by two day Forum discussing how Industrial biotechnology contributes to transforming sectors and addresses consumer choices and needs.
The conference will network and showcase more than 500 delegates from the industry of all sizes, from start-ups with the next transformative technology to multi-national producers scaling up to meet global demand for sustainable and novel products across sectors. It will also bring together the community that enables the industry to deliver, including the researchers, policy makers, academia, regulators, global organisations and local leaders that build the framework for a sustainable society.
For the first time in 2022, EFIB will host a post-conference meeting in the Permanent Representation of Lithuania to the EU in Brussels on 30 November, which will deliver the EFIB Vilnius Statement to policy makers at the heart of Europe.
