CLIB International Conference 2021

4 February 2021 - 5 February 2021

On 4-5 February 2021, CLIB will once again organise its renowned international conference, als known as CIC. CIC 2021‘s theme, “Biotechnology 2021: Advancing into a decade of sustainability”, stresses the fact that 2021 is the first year in a decade which aims to see big advances in sustainability.

The conference will discuss trends and developments for a sustainable future economy, based on biogenic, renewable, and recycled carbon. Based on the foundations built in the past decades, this sustainable economy can now be realised with new technological advancements, supporting regulations, and a change in our way of living. The conference will shed light on the role of biotechnology in this bigger picture.

The CIC2021 will cover markets like textiles (for technical as well as clothing applications), and food (with a focus on functional ingredients), that have a strong impact on our daily life and also the economy as a whole. Furthermore, the production of aromatics from biomass and the utilisation of carbon-rich gases (e.g. CO2 or biogas) will be discussed. Also, the final of the Global Biobased Businessplan Competition (G-BiB), will take place on the second day of the conference, showcasing the most promising concepts for innovative bio-renewable chemicals, materials or fuel products.

CIC expects an audience of over 180 with industry representatives, a large number of national and international SMEs, research institutions, and stakeholders from politics. CIC has established itself during the past years as a platform to initiate partnerships along value chains in the bio- and circular economy.

Please mark your calendars, more information about the programme, speakers and registration procedure will follow soon on https://www.clib2021.de/.
