RRB-15 Conference
15th edition of the International Conference on Renewable Resources & Biorefineries
Toulose - France

Delegates from university, industry, governmental and non-governmental organizations and venture capital providers will present their views on industrial biotechnology, sustainable (green) chemistry and agricultural policy related to the use of renewable raw materials for non-food applications and energy supply. The conference further aims at providing an overview of the scientific, technical, economic, environmental and social issues of renewable resources and biorefineries in order to give an impetus to the biobased economy and to present new developments in this area.

5th. IMTB 2019
Cavtat, Croatia

The IMTB conference aims to provide a platform for people from industry and academia, working in the cross-section of microfluidics, life sciences, analytics and bioprocess engineering. The interdisciplinary feature of the IMTB conferences enables participants to present and discuss their latest results, developments and strategies within these complementary fields and to integrate them to gain new accomplishments for industrial implementation.

masterclass Applied Biocatalysis
Organised by The Graduate Schools VLAG and ENTEG (Groningen)
Wageningen Campus

Background Enzymes are used in various industrial processes ranging from the ton scale conversion of starch to the gram scale synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients. The enzymes used in these industrial processes need to be robust, cheap and work under varying conditions. This masterclass will provide detailed information on the basic principles of enzymes, their engineering and immobilisation, and matters relevant to their industrial use. In addition, emerging fields such as use of enzymes in combination with chemical catalysts, alternative cofactors, enzyme nanoreactors and the use of enzymes in the lab on a chip will be discussed. A special session will deal with the future possibilities of CRISP-Cas technologies. Also issues relevant to industrial practice such as intellectual property will be presented.
