At DECHEMA, ‘Bioeconomy’ is where biology and technology meet.  The exchange of ideas among biologists, chemists, engineers and colleagues from related fields in our working groups facilitates early detection of the industrial potential of research results. The disciplines involved range from molecular-oriented basic research in bioinformatics, chemical biology, natural products research, and systems and synthetic biology through to bioprocess engineering, industrial biotransformations, and applied research in food and algae biotechnology. 

The Biotechnology Section also hosts the Committee on Education in Biotechnology, the for young biotechnologists, and the Association of German Biotechnology Companies (VBU). The section also initiates and fosters interdisciplinary collaboration through co-operations with other organizations, including joint working groups. A large number of conferences and workshops promote communication among researchers, developers, and users.
