Biomanufacturing Policy Summit 2024 – Policy pathways for biomanufacturing in Europe

13 March @ 1:00 pm 8:00 pm CET

The Biomanufacturing Policy Summit will host its 2nd edition in March 2024. The invite-only half-day summit hosted by EuropaBio brings together stakeholders including industry representatives and policymakers, to discuss Europe’s ambitions for biomanufacturing and the tangible legislative, regulatory and strategic pathways.

2023 was a year of visibility and recognition for biomanufacturing in Europe. It saw the creation of the Strategic Technologies for Europe Platform (STEP) and the announcement of the EU Biotech and Biomanufacturing Initiative, plus the identification of biotechnology as a critical technology for Europe’s security. 2024 is expected to be a year in which initiatives gain policy momentum, within a new Parliament and Commission and begin to deliver practical and impactful instruments to European industries.
