Spring meeting of DECHEMA-BioTechNet

The spring meeting of the DECHEMA-BiotechNet (formerly the Biotechnology Association) will take place as a virtual conference on 7-8 March 2022.

The programme consists of lectures and discussions around the subject of "Biotechnology and climate change" (in German language). The invited speakers for the first day are Tobias Erb (MPI Marburg), Bernd Hackauf (Julius Kühn Institute) and our colleague and VIVALDI partner Falk Harnisch (UFZ Leipzig). The presentations will report on metabolic engineering to fix CO2, plant biotechnology for robust cereal plants and the use of electrical energy for biotechnological processes. The day closes with a panel discussion with the audience and the presentation of the Future Forum award.

Day 2 begins with the presentations of the candidates for young researchers in biotechnology. The programme continues with the selection of the junior university teacher prizes for technical chemistry and process engineering.
