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.
‘After a successful 2021 in person edition, which discussed how our companies can help to deliver the EU Green Deal, we are exploring how industrial biotechnology advances contribute to the next generation economies and creating more sustainable societies.
