With great pleasure we are announcing that the next edition of the European Congress of Life Sciences Eurobiotech will be organized in Krakow, Poland, from 23 to 25 September 2019. Once again we look forward to welcoming you in International Exhibition and Convention Centre EXPO Kraków - a city of rich history, culture and science. The previous six editions of the congress showed how great potential is hidden in this extraordinary event which is becoming more and more successful every year. Our past congress gathered 450 participants from 22 countries. We would like to emphasize that every year the participants' voice is extremely valuable to us. It is our responsibility to make sure that we will prepare the congress which will meet the most demanding requirements.
We want to officially announce: AGROBIOTECHNOLOGY and PERSONALISED MEDICINE will be the leading motives of the 7th Eurobiotech.
The critical issues for modern agriculture and medicine are biotechnologies: the classical one, the modern one and many bio-innovations. Since biotechnology is controversial for many people in our society we shall try to answer some critical questions: Who needs modern biotech and why? Will it be possible to perform modern agriculture as well as personalised medicine without it? Do we have any chance to avoid innovative bio-technologies in order to guarantee food, feed, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics and bio-materials for 10 billion people in the perspective of the year 2050?! Is there any other way? Taking into account the public perception as market value factor how to answer on the basic question: Who should make crucial decisions all society or elite group of experts?
We will do our best to answer these and many more questions using solid bioscience: bioinformatics, genomics, synthetic biology, microbiology but also newest molecular techniques such as sequencing, new breeding techniques [NBT] and plant’s diagnostic.
In 2019 we look forward to an exciting conference with great scientific debates and fantastic interactions with political and business leaders, top researchers and investors. We are working on inspiring program including a list of distinguished speakers and we want to bring together the best specialists in the field of biotechnology.
We look forward to welcoming you in September 2019 in Krakow!
