European Biotech Week 2020

The European Biotech Week is an annual celebration of biotechnology through events and public outreach activities taking place across Europe. In 2019, the 8th edition featured over 130 initiatives involving thousands of participants across 18 European countries.

Any organisation that is active in or cares about biotech can get involved and raise awareness of the field across Europe in whatever way best fits their mission and resources. Past participants include associations, universities, cultural and research centres, government institutions, schools, large and small biotech companies, science museums, but also individuals such as students, patients and farmers. This is an open and inclusive initiative which is entirely free of charge and not driven by any commercial interest. Participating organisers can ask for European Biotech Week goodies to be sent to their preferred location ahead of their events/activities.

The initiative stems from the passion of those involved in biotech to discuss, communicate and share knowledge with the public at large about the incredible discoveries, benefits and potential offered by the application of this technology. The driving force behind the initiative is the National Biotech Associations Council of EuropaBio, the Brussels-based European Association for Bioindustries.

If you are not based in Europe, don’t worry, our initiative is part of Global Biotech Week. Visit and involve your country in the global biotech conversation.
