European Biotech Week

Series of events celebrating biotechnology

The European Biotech Week comprises a weeklong series of events celebrating biotechnology, an innovative and vibrant sector launched by the discovery of the DNA molecule back in 1953. The first European Biotech Week took place in 2013, marking the 60th anniversary of this pivotal moment in history. Thanks to that discovery, the deeper knowledge of genes, proteins, viruses, bacteria and genetic structures in general has allowed scientists and biotech entrepreneurs to translate knowledge into applications in sectors such as healthcare, agriculture, food, energy, water sanitation and biochemical processing, all of which have changed the world for the better.

Events take place all across Europe every year. Please see the Events section to see all the participating countries in Europe.
