Theme

From Waste to Resource – Biotechnology for a Circular Economy; During the 9th Life Science Symposium we will take a deep dive into this sustainable theme. Top-of-the-field international academics and engineers will show how biotechnology can play a pivotal role in shifting towards a circular economy, which will be crucial to reduce pollution with an ever growing world population. During the day, a diverse range of subjects will be covered, including the synthesis of second-generation biofuels from agricultural waste, microbial PET bottle recycling and wastewater treatment.

With this theme we hope to inspire students and academics with the new advances and possibilities within the field of biotechnology, and show how it can play a major role in the transition to a circular economy.
