6th International Bioeconomy Conference

The 6th International Bioeconomy Conference took place on 10 and 11 May in Halle an der Saale. The event was organised by the ScienceCampus Halle – Plant-based Bioeconomy (WCH) and the Leading-Edge Cluster BioEconomy, and was held, for the first time, at the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina. Dr Christian Patermann was the very special guest of honour.
The conference was opened on 10 May by Mr Patermann, who has played a decisive role in advancing bioeconomy research through his many years of dedicated work in the area of sustainable land use and food security, and through his tireless efforts as the former director of the European Commission. The “Father” of the European bioeconomy was whole-heartedly enthusiastic about the well-attended conference, which had 160 attendees, and the new venue, which he called “The White House of Science”.
