First Gießen Symposium for Insect Biotechnology

We are delighted to invite delegates to the 1st Gießen Symposium for Insect Biotechnology.

With more than one million catalogued species, insects are the most successful organisms in terms of biodiversity. They have evolved a diverse arsenal of active ingredients and enzymes to defend themselves against pathogens and predators, and to utilize challenging nutritional resources. Insect biotechnology, also known as yellow biotechnology, will make this enormous range of natural substances available to the bioeconomy.

The symposium has been organized by the LOEWE Centre for Insect Biotechnology and Bioresources, and brings together scientists and professionals from insect biotechnology and related disciplines to share recent developments and research. We offer an interdisciplinary programme allowing delegates to discuss recent innovations, develop knowledge and skills, and build valuable connections with others from around the world.

The 1st Gießen Symposium for Insect Biotechnology is free and open to the public, and will be held on 9-10 October 2017 in Gießen.
