The European Society for Biochemical Engineering Sciences (ESBES) and the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) are delighted to present ESBES 2016. This major event will provide a platform for bioengineers and others to discuss the latest in research and industrial application of all aspects of biochemical engineering.

The ESBES symposium was first staged in 1996, in Dublin, Ireland, and is widely regarded as one of Europe’s leading events in the biochemical engineering sector.

Taking place every two years, the event stimulates scientific advances in the field and provides a platform for communication, education and interdisciplinary exchange. It also provides an important conduit between industry and academia, fostering the cooperation between international bioengineers.

Key benefits - why should you attend?

As well as the chance to present, debate and discuss relevant topics and technologies, you'll find out about:

  • latest developments on biochemical engineering research
  • latest EU research project results dissemination 
  • career opportunities for biochemical and process engineers

Plus a chance to attend: 

  • the Raw Material Forum
  • writing workshop
  • student/industry networking forum

Meet with other industry and academic delegates and network with early career researchers to foster new relationships with future employees. 

Companies will be able to showcase leading products for the industrial biotechnology sector and gain a better understanding of who is working in what area. They will also have the opportunity to meet future customers (researchers/academics and those that purchase equipment/resources for their research).
