ESBP 2019 · September 25 – 27 · Straubing/Germany
With around 110 participants from nearly 20 different countries, the ESBP 2019 was a great success at its 10th anniversary. Based on excellent speakers and poster presentations the recent development of research and innovation in the field of biopolymers was presented and discussed. It got obvious, that new technologies in material processing and state-of-the art techniques for genetic engineering such as synthetic biology bring novel and innovative materials as well as applications to push the research on biopolymers towards a new level.
The 10th ESBP connected young and well-established outstanding researchers with industry as well as small start-up companies to bring innovative and sustainable solutions to the market. The location of Straubing was a perfect place for this anniversary meeting, since the city of Straubing is the center of the region of renewable resources, and the TUM Campus Straubing of Biotechnology and Sustainability, together with the Competence Center of Renewable Resources, represents a very strong nucleus of research in this field. Together with the C.A.R.M.E.N e.V. we organized this 10th anniversary meeting to link academia and industry and identify new perspectives on biopolymers to continue to face many problems such as climate change and a permanently growing population in combination with the need for sustainable industrial solutions. Thus, the basic idea of the European Symposium on Biopolymers has never been as relevant as it is today.
We were very happy to welcome all of you here to Straubing to experience a great and inspiring ESBP 2019 with compelling presentations, discussions, and new network contacts. We hope you enjoyed the ESBP 2019 and we will see you soon at the international version (ISBP 2020) and the ESBP 2021 in Brno, Check Republic.
