European Biotech Week
Telling the story of European Biotechnolgy!
The European Biotech Week comprises a week-long 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, between September 30 and October 4, 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.
In Europe, the National Associations Council, hosted by EuropaBio, represents 15 national biotech associations that together represent over 1,800 small- and medium-sized biotech companies and organisations.
Events held in Lithuania during the European Biotech Week will be announced soon.
