The European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology and the Biobased Economy (EFIB) opened to a record delegation in Brussels at The Square. Now in its 6th year, EFIB successfully made the transformation from a small specialised conference to a market leading, pan European flagship event for this vibrant and dynamic sector of Europe’s bioeconomy.

The event had 700 delegates in attendance, 45 exhibitors and 20 technology showcase presentations. They took place alongside a formidable programme of senior leaders including Belgian Ministers, a record number of European policy makers and CEOs from Galactic, Ecover and several other multinational companies.
