The Himmelfahrtstagung on Bioprocess Engineering is an annual conference bringing together experts in this field to discuss the latest developments and innovations.
The meeting covers a wide range of topics related to bioprocess engineering, including novel bioprocesses, smart technologies and their combination in upstream and downstream processing, and bioprocess solutions to achieve sustainable development goals.
The conference is a great opportunity to gain access to the scientific knowledge, technologies and contacts needed to improve efficiencies in all phases of bioproduct development and manufacturing, from basic chemicals to biopharmaceuticals.
Major Topics will be:
Recent Advances in
- Upstream bioprocess development for current biopharmaceuticals
- Producing next generation of biopharmaceuticals
- Developing sustainable production processes for industrial bioeconomy
- Intensifying bioprocesses with innovative means
- Efficiently linking downstream with upstream bioprocesses
- Data science & AI for strain and bioprocess development
- Open Topic
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.
The Industrial Bioprocess Award will be awarded as part of the Himmelfahrtstagung.

You are cordially invited to contribute to the scientific programme with a lecture or poster.
We look forward to your contributions from research institutions, universities, and industry. New work that is not yet completed, recently started or in the planning stage can also be presented.
Deadline for a paper submission is 12 January 2024.
You can submit papers for the following topics:
Upstream bioprocess development for current biopharmaceuticals
Producing next generation of biopharmaceuticals
Developing sustainable production processes for industrial bioeconomy
Intensifying bioprocesses with innovative means
Efficiently linking downstream with upstream bioprocesses data science & AI for strain and bioprocess development
Please prepare an abstract with 1-2 pages (incl. figures, max. size 1 MB, max. 2 pages). The abstract should explicitly mention objectives, new results and conclusions or significance of the work.
The selection of the contributions will be based on the review of the abstracts by the scientific committee. Accepted abstracts will be published for all conference participants in a book of abstracts (PDF file).
The congress language is English.
Please note: Registration fee cannot be waived for authors.
Manufacturers for laboratory equipment, producing companies in industrial and pharmaceutical biotechnologies as well as research institutes are invited to participate in the exhibition.
The exhibition, fully integrated in the conference, offers a unique opportunity to promote your technologies, products and services in the field of bioprocess technology.
