Industrial biotechnology for a sustainable and resilient global Europe
As the EU looks ahead to the European elections in 2024, with a new EU Commission mandate and Work Programme, EuropaBio reviews European strategies and ambitions where biotechnology plays a key role. Ursula von der Leyen’s State of the European Union address of 13 September announced an ‘EU Biotech and Biomanufacturing Initiative’. The announced EU initiative is the latest indication of a greater point of recognition and acceleration for biotechnology.
Building on this momentum, the EFIB Rotterdam Statement of 2023 provides a priority pathway for biotechnology to support Europe’s global leadership, resilience and competitiveness.
We invite you to join us for a discussion on the role and potential of biotechnology and Europe’s global position in the context of the 2024 EU election.
