European Biotech Week 2018

Research and Science
Date: Monday, 24 September 2018 - Friday, 28 September 2018

Venue: Place Luxembourg  |  City: Elsene

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.

In 2018, the week takes place between 24-30 September. Join us and get involved!

Place Luxembourg is going to be home to a unique exhibition as part of the European Biotech Week, showcasing the contributons of biotechnology towards achieving the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

The exhibition is going to be placed in front of Station Europe and informs about all benefits of biotech. A industrial biotechnology booth will showcase the role of bio-economy in your everyday life. In partnership with BIOCOM AG, the exhibition will give you an insight into the breadth of products that can be made with renewable raw materials, as opposed to fossil carbon, with the help of industrial biotech. Agricultural biotechnology benefits will be showcased in partnership with CropLife International. Global ‘Food Heroes’ will exemplify how food related issues are currently tackled with the means of agricultural biotechnology. In a third booth, healthcare biotechnology will be represented by the means of Johnson & Johnson, who are showcasing how diverse facets of ‘red’ biotech are contributing to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
