Brocante and Biotech – BMC Biotechnology at the ESBES-IFIBiop Lille 14

On the first weekend of September, the city of Lille in northern France hosts the largest flea market in Europe, the “Braderie de Lille”. Starting on the same weekend this year, the city will also host the ESBES-IFIBiop congress (September 7-10).

The congress takes place at the Lille Grand Palais and is a joint event combining the 10th European Symposium on Biochemical Engineering Sciences and the 6th International Forum on Industrial Bioprocesses. The program is extensive and broad and promises to be at least as interesting as the giant flea market, covering biochemical, marine and food bioengineering, process engineering, and regenerative medicine, just to name a few topics. I will have the pleasure to attend the congress to represent BMC Biotechnology and I would be delighted to meet as many delegates as possible, to discuss the latest developments in the field, answer any questions on BMC Biotechnology and discuss any interest in joining the Editorial Board.

If you are attending the congress and would like to meet, then please contact me at

A bientôt!
