The deadline to enter the #BiotechFan competition for a chance of winning a trip to European Biotech Week this September is 15 July.

We are official supporters of European Biotech Week – taking place between 23-29 September – and want to remind readers of the EuropaBio-backed video comp that could take you there for free.

So if you are ‘a student, scientist, researcher or biotech enthusiast living in the EU and who is passionate about communicating the benefits of biotech’, this is for you.

Here’s what you need to do…

“Send a video. Your video can be as creative, serious or funny as you want it to be. The aim is to explain in a maximum of 2 minutes, in the language of your choice, why biotechnology is so important for you and/or everyone else, using any specific example(s) you find appropriate, from any field of application (such as healthcare, industrial or agricultural biotech). For example, show us what kind of incredible things we can achieve with genome editing and explain why you are passionate about biotech.  What would be your biotech wish for 2020?,” the competition web page states.

Send your submission before 15 July to hello@biotechweek.org via WeTransfer or tweet it to us @biotechweek using #BiotechFan.
