Lab of Bioprocess Engineering, Technische Universität Berlin, and the Institute of liquor manufacturing and biotechnology (IFGB)
The 2020 Symposium will focus on “Innovative scale-up and scale-down for bioprocess intensification” and is jointly organised by the Lab of Bioprocess Engineering, Technische Universität Berlin, and the Institute of liquor manufacturing and biotechnology (IFGB) in Berlin. For the sixth time, the symposium brings together experts from research & development and industrial practice in bioprocessing of pharmaceuticals, food and feed components, bulk and fine chemicals.The symposium has established itself internationally as one of the most important events especially in the field of bioprocess scale up and scale down.
