European Biotech Week: Celebrating Innovation
The European Biotech Week established itself as a week of celebrations of science and biotech.
This year, #biotechweek will be from 28 September to 4 October 2020, start planning your #biotech event and register it with #EuropeanBiotechWeek.
It can be anything, from a science cafe to a seminar, an artistic performance, a live demonstrations and more!
The European Biotech Week celebrates biotechnology, an innovative and vibrant sector launched by the discovery of the DNA molecule back in 1953. The first European Biotech Week that took place in 2013 marked the 60th anniversary of this pivotal moment in history.
This momentous occasion opened the door to a better understanding of the world we live in both for scientists and for society. To provide you with an example, DNA triggered crucial discoveries and deeper knowledge on genes, proteins, viruses, bacteria and stem cells. Biotech entrepreneurs were able to translate this knowledge into applications for many sectors such as healthcare, agriculture, food, energy, water sanitation and biochemical processing, all of which have changed the world for the better.
Biotech associations are key in helping to maximize the potential of biotechnology. In Europe, the National Associations Council, hosted by EuropaBio, represents 15 national biotech associations that together represent over 1,800 small- and medium-sized biotech companies and organisations.
