Patronage of the IBF 2018

The Industrial Biotechnology Forum 2018 is under the patronage of the Bavarian State Minister of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology, Ms. Ilse Aigner, and the State Secretary in the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology, Mr. Franz Josef Pschierer.

 

 

We are particularly delighted to be patrons of the Industrial Biotechnology Forum this year, as this conference is now established as a biennial international conference series especially dedicated to all aspects of Industrial Biotechnology. Seeing the success of the event in 2016, it is certain to say that the IBF conferences are supposed to become the leading meet-up event in this sector.

As the program indicates, the IBF 2018 virtually builds the foundation for a long-lasting and successful meeting series by combining excellence, internationality and representation of academia and industry in a very unique approach. The close connection of scientific achievements and economic commercialization reflects the essence of the Bavarian policy for transferring scientific highlights to the market. Only with a tight link between science and economy, a sustainable and value adding network of all stakeholders can develop, thus generating a new, a bio-based economy.

The concept of the IBF is the result of an alliance between two “Bavarian stars”: the elite and entrepreneurial Technical University of Munich and the extremely spry and thriving Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH (abbr. IBB Netzwerk GmbH). We support the IBB Netzwerk since 2008 to foster technology transfer and to promote Industrial Biotechnology and a sustainable economy. Thus, we are very pleased to see how well the Industrial Biotechnology is meanwhile established in Bavaria. Approximately 340 companies with roughly 40,000 employees work in this sector in Bavaria creating new solutions for food, cosmetics or plastics – to name only a few fields of application.

We wish the organizers as well as all participants a very interesting, successful and inspiring IBF 2018!
