Have you ever asked what “biobased” means or wondered about the key aspects in developing and commercializing biobased products? This course will answer those questions and more; highlighting the opportunities, hurdles, and driving forces of the bioeconomy. The course describes the different types of biomass, the methods of refinery and typical conversion technologies used for biobased products. You'll also engage in a study of the practical and real-life examples emerging in the market: biopolymers, bioenergy, bioflavours, and biosurfactants.more

Milk without cows, egg white without chicken, meat without cattle and vegetables without arable land – the agriculture of the future will not happen in stables, or fields but in urban food laboratories right in the heart of our cities. Powered by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the global metropolises have become the crucial turbine rooms of the knowledge-based society and therefore our knowledge-based economy. Cities attract young, highly specialised professionals as well as investors. Will the future food production follow this trend and move its focus from the countryside to cities?more

Based on the huge success of the previous four Euro BioMAT Symposia 2011 in Jena and in 2013, 2015 and 2017 in Weimar this international conference will be held every two years in the Jena-Weimar region. The symposium Euro BioMAT 2019, 08.-09. May 2019, addresses the growing interest of science and industry in the different aspects of the creation, characterization, testing and application of bio-materials and closely related areas. he organizers at the DGM feel a need to serve the European bio-materials community beyond other European and world biomaterials congresses with a compact two-day meeting which brings together fascinating science and stimulating people in a delightful setting in historic Weimar in the very heart of Europe.more
Synthetic Biology holds the promise to be a driving force for the advancement of the bioeconomy. In the not so distant future, SynBio applications are predicted to be part of our everyday life; from the energy we use, to the food we eat and even the beauty products we apply. The potential benefits of SynBio are huge - but so are the challenges. The SynBio World Cafe is being co-organized by CompuGene and GASB to tackle those challenges.more
The ScienceCampus Halle and the Leading-Edge Cluster BioEconomy cordially invite you to the 8th International Bioeconomy Conference in Halle on 13 - 14 May 2019. The motto this year is “Bio meets Economy – Science meets Industry”. Every year it brings together internationally renowned representatives of science and industry to discuss the latest research findings, innovations and current developments on the market.more
The International Conference of the Cluster of Excellence The Fuel Science Center will take place in the Eurogress in Aachen, already held for the 7th time. Scientists from all over the world are expected in Aachen during these days to present and discuss their latest results in the field of fuel development.
In the last years, the conference has shown well the interdisciplinary work of the last Cluster of Excellence Tailor-Made Fuels from Biomass. And yet again, the program covers a wide range of contributions from various disciplines.
Despite the harsh environment, a few innovative companies find markets for their new bio-based building blocks, chemicals and polymers. We will introduce you to the technology leaders our planet needs for a sustainable future.more
The focus of the PBS 2019 Conference is to stimulate biobased products development through a market driven approach. In 2019, the Plant Based Summit program will particularly address the markets of home and personal care, pharmaceuticals, construction, packaging, transportation, coating, adhesives, as well as a dedicated cross-market stream on biobased solutions for infants and kids (toys, cosmetics, etc.).more
