The 7th Applied Synthetic Biology in Europe (ASBE VII) is organised by the European Federation of Biotechnology (EFB) Bioengineering and Bioprocessing Division and the EFB Microbial Biotechnology Division. The event will be held on 6-8 November 2024 in Brno, Czech Republic. Following the success of previous meetings in this series, ASBE VII will explore the wealth of applied synthetic biology research and how it is contributing to progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The meeting will bring together key partners from academia, industry and the third sector interested in using synthetic biology, engineering biology and applied microbiology to address global challenges.

The format is designed to mix international guest lectures by renowned scientists with shorter presentations by early career researchers (and is supported by the European Synthetic Biology Society of Students and Postdocs EUSynBioS). The programme has a strong ED&I focus, with invited talks and presentations selected from submitted abstracts.

We look forward to welcoming you to Brno in November 2024.
