biotechnology, bioeconomy, 17th European Congress of Biotechnology


Bioeconomy and circular economy are lately buzzing words in political as well as in academic groups. Both of those ideas are based on biotechnology knowledge and they are assuming implementation of new, environmental-friendly technologies, which should contribute to reduction of fossil fuels usage and creation of job opportunities in country as well as urban areas. Furthermore in both – European frame program “Horizon 2020” and Polish “National Development Strategy 2020” issues related to bioeconomy and biotechnology are emphasized. In Cracow from 3 to 6 July 2016 was held 17th European Congress on Biotechnology (ECB2016), organized by European Federation of Biotechnology and Biotechnology Committee of Polish Academy of Sciences. This meeting gave the opportunity for scientist, companies and policy makers for collaboration upon different aspects of agricultural, industrial and medical biotechnology and its contribution to development of bioeconomy ideas.
