About the Council


Industrial biotechnology uses enzymes and micro-organisms to make biobased products from renewable raw materials in sectors such as chemicals, food and feed, detergents, paper and pulp, textiles, and bioenergy.
EuropaBio’s Industrial Biotechnology Council develops sector-specific strategy, formal advocacy and biotech positioning within teams of companies, national biotech association representatives and sector experts.
These drive the majority of EuropaBio messaging and actions in the area of industrial biotechnology. Dedicated working groups cover ongoing topical issues and activities. Our activities centre around circular bioeconomy, food and feed, and our flagship event, the annual European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy (EFIB), organized by EuropaBio.

Priorities


The Industrial Biotechnology Council has priorities selected by Members for shared work throughout the year. Priorities include: A favourable policy & regulatory environment for all IB products and processes in the EU.

Current and future biotechnology innovation needs a science-based, proportionate and predictable regulatory approach. It is also important to ensure appropriate and realistic policy and regulatory requirements for GMM-derived food & feed products and additives, to further contribute to improved nutrition for humans and animals.

Within this priority, focus is thus placed on topics such as the GM regulatory framework and GMM specific items of interest. The EU Green Deal is also a primary focus, increasing political and public recognition of the relevance and value of Industrial Biotechnology.

Increase awareness and understanding of the benefits of industrial biotechnology and its contribution to the EU’s green transformation

Industrial biotechnology is an enabling technology for a more competitive, sustainable and circular bioeconomy.
EuropaBio works to translate a complex technology into concrete impact stories, deliver the European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy (EFIB) and support EU R&I framework to drive biotechnology as key contributor to help tackle global challenges.

The association is a founding member of the European Bioeconomy Alliance (EUBA) and also its chair in 2021.
