New Bioprocesses, New Bioproducts is the topic for the next Himmelfahrtstagung, the most important meeting for bioprocess and biochemical engineers in Germany. Submit your paper now and join experts from industry, universities and research organisations in discussing the latest scientific findings in bioprocess development.
At the Himmelfahrtstagung 2020, we would like to take a look at the entire value chain of bioproduction, from innovative strain development methods to new prokaryotic and eukaryotic production strains, smart reactor concepts, and innovative downstream processing. We will discuss bioproduction processes for biopharmaceuticals and industrial biotech products.
Noteworthy, the ‘Himmelfahrtstagung’ also serves as a platform for young scientists to present their results to the scientific community. As such, young researches are invited to submit their work to the committee for getting the chance of presentation, irrespective of the topic of the conference.
