Würzburg (Germany)
Germany's leading Biotech Event

The 2019 German Biotech Days (DBT), offer a forum for all stakeholders in Germany’s biotech scene to exchange views and experiences. The Bavarian Research and Innovation Agency (BayFIA) will take part in the event and inform visitors about its service portfolio.

Since 2010, the Council of German BioRegions in BIO Deutschland has put on the German Biotech Days, an annual two-day event: The DBT. This event is a meeting place for more than 850 representatives from the worlds of business, science and government, including partners from funding institutions and public administration. Through a series of talks, panel discussions and breakfast sessions, the conference discusses the conditions for innovation in biotechnology and the wide range of biotech applications. In addition, an accompanying exhibition will give companies, research institutes, associations and organizations an opportunity to present themselves to conference attendees.

The Bavarian Research and Innovation Agency will be present at the exhibition and inform about issues related to research and innovation funding, knowledge and technology transfer, patents, licences and business start-ups.

The Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR), part of the LIGNOFLAG consortium, will join the event as a partner within the Bavarian Research and Innovation Agency (BayFIA). Interested stakeholders from science and industry will be provided with information on European funding opportunities in the field of Biotechnology. Moreover, the BayFOR can help with finding Bavarian partners from Universities and SME for international research and innovation projects.

For international attendees a programme in English is offered at the first conference day. Simultaneous translation in English will be provided for the opening plenary. Selected talks will also be given in English as indicated in the programme.

All international participants are welcome to join the networking reception on Tuesday evening.

A DBT day pass covering the English tracks and the networking party on Tuesday evening (first day) is 250 €.
