April 17, 2016

From April 17-20, 2016 the BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioprocessing will take place in San Diego (USA). This conference is the world's largest industrial biotechnology event for business leaders, investors and policy makers in biofuels, biobased products, and renewable chemicals.

The BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology (WCIB 2016) was chosen again by Topsector Chemie for the 'Strategische Beurzen' programme. BE-Basic was asked to coordinate the Holland Biotech Pavilion. This year, Holland has formed a partnership with BioInnovation Growth mega-Cluster (BIG-C): an innovation cluster with partners in the Netherlands, Flanders and North Rhine Westphalia.
