Go and explore biotech

European Biotech Week gets underway today with over 100 accessible events that invite the public to come and learn more about biotech and science. Nearly half of them are available online, so there are plenty of opportunities for people to discover the variety of ways this sector is transforming their daily lives.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the continent’s leading biotech umbrella organisation, EuropaBio, is launching its first Biotech Week event today: Biotechnology for society – turning science into a sustainable and healthy world, from 3.30pm to 5pm CEST. It is a virtual meeting which will discuss ‘how does Europe deliver innovation to benefit patients and our planet whilst ensuring the high standards and safety that we expect?’.

European Biotech Week runs from 27 September to 3 October. Around 40% of the events are on-site, across 15 countries – find one that appeals to you.


Vienna is the host city for next month’s European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology and Bioeconomy (EFIB). It is the 14th edition of the event, and Innovators Magazine has been a media partner with around half of them, and is proud to partner up again this year.

EFIB brings together the diverse range of stakeholders working in the sector, to catalyse new innovations, share ideas, showcase startups, and develop solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges. There will be over 110 organisations taking part open to partnership opportunities, 20 leading bioeconomy SMEs in the Start-up Village, and dozens of speakers from across the world of biotechnology.

Organised by EuropaBio, it will be a moment when those in the sector are asked to ‘vote for the most significant biotech from the last quarter century’. There are lots of amazing breakthroughs to choose from, including the first COVID vaccine.

Taking place on 6-7 October, it is the goto annual meeting of biotech innovators. Register today to be part of it.
