Outstanding program for process engineers and biotechnologists10.08.2011 - (idw) DECHEMA Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie e.V.
From September 25th-29th, 2011 the 8th European Congress of Chemical Engineering and the 1st European Congress of Applied Biotechnology take place in Berlin. Outstanding speakers from academia and industry have confirmed their participation. About 800 lectures cover the complete range of current topics from simulation to plant design and safety technology and from systems biology to biorefineries. About 1,000 scientific posters, an accompanying industry exhibition and an attractive social program stimulate discussion and offer an opportunity for networking.
Highlights of the program are amongst others contributions by Prof. Dr. Frances H. Arnold (California Insitute for Technology), Dr. Andreas Kreimeyer (BASF SE), Dr. Konstantin Konstantinov (Genzyme Corporation), Prof. Dr. Philippe Tanguy (TOTAL S.A.) and Prof. Dr. Rolf Werner (Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH).
Federal Minister of Education and Research Prof. Dr. Annette Schavan will welcome the participants to this years most important European event for process engineering and biotechnology. The opening speech is held by Prof. Dr. Peter Seeberger, Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces.
The political framework for biobased economy and research is summarized in the term Bio-Economy. The exact meaning and the impact of the concept on practical activities will be the subject of a panel discussion on Tuesday afternoon.
On Tuesday evening applied engineering and biotechnology can be experienced at two students competitions. In the 5th ChemCar Competition organized by the creative young process engineers (kjVIs) vehicles no larger than a shoe box have to master a defined distance driven by a chemical reaction. The members of the brewing society Campusperle have issued an invitation for the 2nd International Brewery Contest where students will demonstrate what one can produce using biotechnology.
The accompanying exhibition displays practical applications, and the attendees have the chance to make new contacts to companies.
