Event Details

European Biotech Week

European Biotech Week (EBW) is a EuropaBio initiative celebrating the innovative and vibrant biotech sector in Europe. This annual occasion opens the door for everyone passionate about biotech to discuss, communicate and share knowledge with the public at large about the incredible everyday benefits this technology offers society. Inspired by the success of the Canadian Biotech Week, the first EBW took place in 2013 to mark the 60th anniversary of the discovery of the DNA molecule. So far, the first four annual editions have featured over 450 events and activities across Europe, with a record 16 European countries participating in 2016.

The range of activities, involving thousands of Europeans in total, is broad and unlimited. It goes from policy events, to media briefings, to open doors in companies and research institutes, career fairs, flash mobs, theatre shows, competitions as well as laboratories for children and are open to young and old, specialists or generalists. For inspiration, brief summaries and photos of all events can be found in the post-week magazines (2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016) and in the follow-up abridged magazines inserted in European Biotech Magazine and Nature Biotech (2014, 2015 and 2016).

EuropaBio’s role is one of promotion and coordination, choosing the week’s timing and providing a logo, promotional materials and an online platform for all stakeholders to use from national/regional/local associations, education/science/research/cultural centres, companies, universities, museums, etc. We promote the European Biotech Week (EBW) is a EuropaBio initiative celebrating the innovative and vibrant biotech sector in Europe.
