Novozymes: ECB2016 Gold Sponsor

Novozymes is the world leader in biological solutions, producing a wide range of industrial enzymes and microorganisms. We believe that we have innovative answers to some of the world's most pressing challenges. The planet's population is growing and consuming more-placing a strain on natural resources and calling for more sustainable ways to meet its needs. Novozymes is helping the world address these challenges. Used in the manufacture of a wide variety of products, our innovative biological solutions improve the efficiency of processes both in industry and in everyday life by saving energy, water and other raw materials, while reducing waste.

The European Federation of Biotechnology (EFB) would like to thank Novozymes and all the companies that make possible the European Congress on Biotechnology ECB2016:

Events organised by our EFB Institutional Members & Partners

European Biotech Week (26 September - 2 October)

From the medicines we use, to the clothes we buy and the detergents we wash them with, biotechnology aims to make our daily lives better. But for non-specialists it can be difficult to understand the potential and the science behind the technology.
Since 2013, European Biotech Week has opened the doors to a better understanding of the world we live in. It is a unique opportunity to engage with the biotech community to unravel and debate why there' s no science like biotech science!
Last year, over 100 events took place across 15 European countries, including science cafés, company site visits, seminars for journalists, roving laboratories and even theatrical performances and social media campaigns about all things biotech.

The Ticking Time Bomb of Antimicrobial Resistance: What can we do and where should we go next?

This workshop will explore how antimicrobial resistant infections are portrayed in the media and how these stories are not always representative of the science they report. The workshops will discuss the science that underpins the antimicrobial resistance problem and also allow participants to discuss antimicrobial resistance from the perspectives of a range of stakeholders.
