Event Description

EuropaBio is pleased to announce that this year’s edition of EFIBEurope’s Leading Event on Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy under the title ‘Industrial biotechnology for a sustainable and resilient global Europe’, will take place 24-25 October 2023 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. EuropaBio is partnering with local hosts HollandBio and ChemistryNL to bring EFIB 2023 to Rotterdam.

Now in its 16th year, EFIB will be dedicated to exploring how industrial biotechnology and the bioeconomy supports European competitiveness. EFIB brings together professionals from across the value chain to discuss advancements from industrial biotechnology and its contribution towards positioning Europe as a global leader in addressing societal and sustainability challenges. Participants include industry of all sizes, as well as the community that enables industry to deliver, including researchers, policy makers, regulators, and global organisations.

Our two-day programme includes inspiring plenaries, a start-up pitching hour and will explore our four thematic areas – Food, Feed & Nutrition; Sustainable Biomaterials; Bioprocesses & Technologies; and Sustainable Finance – as well as new frontiers like biomanufacturing. The programme is complemented by the exhibition: including start-ups and SMEs in our SME Village, the academic poster presentation in our Innovation Campus, and exhibitors from industry and national associations. Interested in exhibiting? Check out our sponsorship page.  

Attending EFIB 2023 will allow you to learn about the latest market trends and research findings in industrial biotechnology and network with key stakeholders.
