European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy (EFIB)

EFIB is the market leading annual event in Europe for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy. The conference plays a crucial role in providing a central meeting place for policy and business communities to discuss how to harness the full potential of today's innovations as the industrial biotechnology sector develops smarter and more sustainable products and processes in building Europe's bioeconomy. In order to understand and overcome challenges and prosper in the industrial biotechnology market, industry experts from throughout the vibrant and innovative bio-based community come together every year to EFIB to discuss the key issues and gain a snapshot of the most significant developments on scale-up of commercial biorefineries around the world and an update on the status and outlook of bio-based industries. EFIB is proud to foster engagement between policy-makers and a broad range of stakeholders connected with the existing bio-based value chain and seeks to reach out to, and include, new interlocutors.

Last year, the 10th anniversary edition of EFIB was a huge success with a programme focused on 'Bioeconomy 2.0: Commercial success and the path towards a brighter bio-based future'. The event highlights included hard-hitting keynotes from the likes of Mathieu Flamini, Co-Founder of GFBiochemicals and Professional Footballer and Jirky Katainen, European Commission Vice-President for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness as well as brand insights from PepsiCo, Renault, L'OREAL, Michelin, LEGO Group, IKEA, Unilever and more.
