There are over 140 events taking place across 19 countries as part of this year’s European Biotech Week.

The event, which started on Monday, runs until 1 October. It is a great and interactive way to raise awareness about the industry.

“The European Biotech Week celebrates biotechnology, an innovative and vibrant sector launched by the discovery of the DNA molecule back in 1953. The first European Biotech Week that took place in 2013 marked the 60th anniversary of this pivotal moment in history,” the event website states.

What makes the week such a great occasion is that it is an open and engaging platform that people can easily access. The messages and information around it are communicated creatively.
