Prof. Dame Anne Glover

I simply had the most amazing taxi journey here speaking to the taxi driver who was telling ME all about the bioeconomy. So I think people here are interested and excited. Why you come to EFIB is to meet people to the unexpected, it’s not to say hello to old friends but it’s to meet new friends, and that for me equals new opportunities.

Mathieu Flamini

It's not like everyday we are able to meet the leaders of the bioeconomy and being here is an opportunity to interact and exchange with them.

Puneet Trehan

Within one or two days you can actually meet ten to twelve potential partners and start taking the journeys forward. Do you know how much time it takes to book these ten to twelve meetings by emails or calls? Probably six months! So that’s an effective way of connecting and networking.

Mark Simmers

I've been very impressed by the high calibre of delegates. Their commitments to biotechnology and the bioeconomy is fantastic and I've had very worthwhile discussions in all the meetings today!

EFIB connects the brightest people to share the latest bio-based innovations, and discuss opportunities and challenges as we are developing a circular economy, enabled by industrial biotech.

Meredith Lloyd-Evans

This event is very much needed in the European context, to act as a home for industrial biotechnology advances, policymakers and companies, and to encourage the sector through networking and new information.

Raphaël Hannoir

Very effective for networking!

Dr Anton Glieder

Very well organised with many important stakeholders on high level.

Kathryn Sheridan

Bringing together policy, industry and the whole value chain, EFIB is THE event in the biotech calendar.
