IWBio Workshop in Bad Kreuznach
IWBio members on their annual workshop in Bad Kreuznach
On the 6th and 7th of June 2013 members of IWBio - Industrial Association White Biotechnology - met in Bad Kreuznach (Rhineland-Palatinate) to update on their companies recent projects and to talk about the innovative alliances NatLifE 2020, ZeroCarbFP and FuPol. Future funding opportunities for White Biotechnology on a national and international scale were also an important subject matter.
The memers of IWBio evaluated funding opportunities on the european level – mainly the new EU programm „BRIDGE 2020“. The possibility of funding public private partnerships in prospect of a biobased economy could be a promissing route for white biotech companies in Germany. The IWBio members pronounced their vision of a prosperous future for White biotechnology - with political awareness as a crucial factor. The association continues to foster knowledge transfer and cooperation within the field to continue the success story of industrial biotechnology in the future.
