over-arching theme for the 2024 Congress will be “Grand Challenges for

biotechnology. Its success is based on a strong academic backbone, an
entrepreneurial spirit, a remarkable talent to get things organized and a
natural ability to cooperate.
addition to daily plenary lectures and five streams of morning and

encouraging them to submit their original work to be considered for
presentation as short talks, flash posters or posters.
