9th European Symposium on Biopolymers - ESBP
ESBP 2017 will be taking place at Hôtel Mercure in the beautifull city of Toulouse, France from the 5th–7th July 2017.
ESBP 2017 aims at bringing together leading experts from both academia and industry to share knowledge and insight into the challenges and opportunities surrounding biopolymers production from microbes. ESBP 2017 will focus on recent developments in the area of biopolymers production, characterization and processing but also on the numerous applications of biopolymeric materials in a variety of fields, including medicine and medical devices, smart materials, coatings, personal care products, structural materials, agro food and agriculture, and many other areas. The main spotlight of ESBP will be on Biopolymers like polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), cellulose, alginates, cyanophicin, poly phosphate, rubber (polyisoprene), etc. Further, ESBP-2017 aims to:
- Gather delegates from companies and from diverse scientific and academic settings to participate in critical debates;
- Facilitate sharing and collaboration between specialists from different backgrounds;
- Evaluate the current and future situation of biopolymers markets;
- Measure advancements relating to industrialization of production chains.

The International Symposium on Biopolymers (ISBP2016)
Our Spanish partner CSIC in collaboration with he Spanish Society of Biotechnology (SEBIOT), has the pleasure to held the 15th edition of the International Symposium on Biopolymers. The traditional spotlight of ISBP has been on biopolymers like polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), cellulose and rubber. ISBP2016 will also extend the focus to other bio-based polymers liPLA, BioPET and others, including talks on the biotechnological production of building blocks to generate bio-based polymers (biodegradable and non-biodegradable). ISBP2016 will be especially interested in connecting cutting edge technologies like Systems Biology and Synthetic Biology to the biopolymer and bio-based polymer field.
