What’s  the European Biotech Week?
The European Biotech Week comprises a weeklong series of events celebrating biotechnology, an innovative and vibrant sector launched by the discovery of the DNA molecule back in 1953. The first European Biotech Week took place in 2013, marking the 60th anniversary of this pivotal moment in history. Thanks to that discovery, the deeper knowledge of genes, proteins, viruses, bacteria and genetic structures in general has allowed scientists and biotech entrepreneurs to translate knowledge into applications in sectors such as healthcare, agriculture, food, energy, water sanitation and biochemical processing, all of which have changed the world for the better.

When does it take place?
The European Biotech Week takes place annually around the month of October. This year you can join us, either by partaking in, or organising an event any time from September 26 to October 02, 2022. Take a look in the events section of this website to find out more about events taking place near you!

Who can participate?
If you are looking to plan any events, large or small, for the European Biotech Week, we’d be happy to hear from you! You can submit an event on our website or contact the European Biotech Week coordinators directly. You can take a look at previous events for inspiration!

What kind of events are taking place?
The possibilities are unlimited! Hundreds of events took place across Europe during the Week’s past editions: science cafes, seminars, workshops, company site visits, artistic performances, conferences, live demonstrations etc. No matter if your knowledge of biotech is vast or near to nothing, you will surely find something creative and interesting that sparks your curiosity! We always try to encourage new ideas and initiatives. Take a look at the Events section to find out what events happened where in Europe during previous editions of the European Biotech Week.

Where do events take place?
Events take place all across Europe every year. Please see the Events section to see all the participating countries in Europe.
