Background of the conference
The 7th International Conference on Bio-based Materials ("Biowerkstoff-Kongress") builds on successful previous conferences - the most sucsessfull took place in 2013:
With 180 participants (60% up on 2012) from 23 countries (up 50%), the conference in 2013 further established it as a major industry meeting-place and visitors both grew in number and became more international. Lengthening the conference to three days to provide comprehensive coverage of political, industrial and scientific issues - in conjunction with Professor Dr. Jörg Müssig from Bremen University of Applied Science’s Bionics Innovation Centre - proved a success.
The Innovation Prize of 2013 has been awarded to the following companies:
