The deadline to enter the #BiotechFan competition for the chance to win a trip to European Biotech Week is 15 July.

Open to students, scientists, researchers and biotech enthusiasts passionate about ‘communicating the benefits of biotech’ and living in the EU, it is being supported by EuropaBio. We are official supporters of European Biotech Week – on from 23-29 September – and want to give readers a final reminder of the 15 July deadline they need to meet to be in with a shout of heading to Brussels this autumn.

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.
