‘Any student, scientist, researcher or biotech enthusiast living in the EU and who is passionate about communicating the benefits of biotech’. That is the the criteria for entering the #BiotechFan competition – part of European Biotech Week 2019, on from 23 to 29 September, which we are official supporters of.

Accommodation and travel to Brussels during that week will be provided by EuropaBio, with the stay including a guided tour through the ‘famous European Quarter together with other biotech enthusiasts to meet EU decision makers and influencers’.

How do you win?

“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.
