WHAT WE DO



EuropaBio - The European Association for Bioindustries, is Europe's largest and most influential biotech industry group. Initiated in 1996 to represent the interests of the biotechnology industry at European level, and constantly engaged in a dialogue with the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Council of Ministers EuropaBio aims to influence legislation on biotechnology, representing Healthcare and Industrial biotechnology sectors.

EuropaBio's stated goals include:
  • promoting an innovative, coherent, and dynamic biotechnology-based industry in Europe;
  • advocating free and open markets and the removal of barriers to competitiveness with other areas of the world;
  • committing to an open, transparent, and informed dialogue with all stakeholders about the ethical, social, and economic aspects of biotechnology and its benefits;
  • championing the socially responsible use of biotechnology to ensure that its potential is fully used to the benefit of humans and their environment.

As its name suggests, EuropaBio's primary focuses on the European Union, but due to the global character of the biotech business, it also represents its members in transatlantic and worldwide forums.

Who We Are

EuropaBio represents corporate and associate members across sectors, plus national and regional biotechnology associations which, in turn, represent over 1800 biotech SMEs. EuropaBio has a Board of Management made up of representatives of member companies. The board is supported by the EuropaBio team who carry out day to day activities and is managed by a Director General.

Two main segments of Biotechnology are represented through sectoral councils: Healthcare (Red Biotech) and Industrial (White Biotech). Experts from member companies actively participate in working groups and task forces which cover a wide range of issues and concerns particular to their industry. Each council, working group or task force is chaired by a member and is coordinated by a EuropaBio staff member.

EuropaBio is a founding member of the International Council of Biotech Associations (ICBA).
