The scientific-cultural training course that has lasted for 8 years starts again this year, involving prestigious speakers and young students.

The VIII Edition of the European Biotech Week will be held on September 29th, in collaboration with the University of Campania Luigi Vanvitelli, the ICB Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry of the CNR and the Ceinge Scrl and will also be an integral part of the Naples Shipping program Week.

The general objective of EBW is to bring young people closer, through science, research, innovation, to the defense of the environment and life. What are the remedies that science puts in place to defend our environment and our health? Together with researchers, young students will also field ideas and research.
