Vienna will be the host of the 14th European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy (EFIB 2021), set to take place on October 5-7 2021. The Austria Center Vienna is expected to gather around 400 leading experts including industry insiders and politicians to explore pioneering technologies in this field.
One of the main topics of the conference will be Sustainable Living and the City of the Future, an issue where the Austrian capital is a leader. Agnes Borg, Director of Industrial Biotechnology at congress organizer EuropaBio in Brussels, said: “Vienna is a trailblazer when it comes to intelligent urban solutions, and it leads the way as far as sustainable technologies and innovation projects are concerned. The city is also home to around 500 life sciences companies. Furthermore, the capital’s start-up scene and numerous academic institutions show exactly what new technologies can contribute to the development of smarter cities.”
