Green Deal Biotechnology; circular bioeconomy, Nanotechnology, Biorecovery, Wastewater, Biochar, Bioelectrochemistry, Bioproduction

As the Environmental Biotechnology Division of the European Federation of Biotechnology, we are delighted to invite scientists from academia and industry for the “Green Deal Biotechnology” conference in Poland. The meeting will take place on 6-8 November 2023 in Poznań, one of the oldest Polish cities.

It will be the first EFB live meeting focusing on the circular bioeconomy, which is currently in line with modern economic and scientific trends. The “Green Deal Biotechnology” will highlight the latest advances in achieving a circular economy in which environmental biotechnology plays a major role and it will focus on    7 major challenges:
  • Recovery of resources, including rare resources and novel bio-based value chains
  • Healthy soil and food security
  • Bioelectrochemistry for energy and water recovery
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Nanotechnology in environmental biotechnology
  • Marine biotechnology
  • Emerging micropollutants in aquatic and terrestrial environments

  • The meeting will bring together scientists and professionals from academia and various sectors of industry sharing the common interest in resource recovery and environmental biotechnology for development of new technologies supporting bioeconomy. The program strongly takes into account the diversity and different stages of researchers' career development. For that reason, keynote lectures by leading scientists will be mixed with talks and shorter early career researcher presentations selected from submitted abstracts as well as with flash poster presentations.

    Poznan is a city on the Warta River in west-central Poland with a rich tradition, good food and beautiful monuments dating back to the early days of the Polish statehood. Staying in Poznań, it is worth visiting the breathtaking Old Town with its Renaissance Town Hall, resting a bit in the Malta park with an artificial lake next to the conference venue or seeing a play in one of the traditional theaters with a long history. Poznań is an open, bustling city that attracts thousands of tourists.

    We are looking forward to meeting all of you this year in Poznań!
