After almost a year of organizational work and thanks to your contribution, the 2018 International CeBiTec Research Conference on Reaction Concepts for Industrial Biocatalysis finally took last April 2018.

The conference was a successful three day scientific event for both academic and industrial participants. In total 90 participants from more than 10 different countries were able to follow inspiring talks from experienced and young researchers within all disciplines of biocatalysis. Besides the lectures, more than 30 researchers presented their innovative work on posters, leading to many discussions and new ideas.

As the conference was settled on the interface between academic research and industrial application, a great exchange of both parts could be motivated, gaps could be bridged and cooperations formed. In the exhibition area, companies could present their newly developed techniques and equipment to the participants.

At the end of the conference, 3 posters were awarded with sponsored poster prices. The Biocascades Scholarship was awarded to Laura Leemans (ESR1), and lastly a talk by the Biocascades Awardee Federica Ruggieri (ESR8).

Within the private atmosphere of the conference not only scientific cooperations were formed, but also friendships were renewed and made. A conference is a great event to meet former and potential future colleagues. Therefore, the conference dinner was a perfect opportunity to meet in a relaxed atmosphere.

Overall the 8th international CeBiTec research conference was a big success enabling many researchers from different disciplines to learn, discuss and create new ideas.

A special thanks to our sponsors! Without your support the conference would not have been such a success story!
