From the very beginning the EUROBIOTECH formula merges conference with the accompanying exhibition. The Congress provides an excellent opportunity for interaction between the scientific community and many segments of the biotechnology industry to provide a platform for exchanging ideas. Congress was attended by nearly 400 participants form Poland and from abroad. 30 companies took a part in accompanying exhibition.

The accompanying exhibition included biotechnology and consulting companies, investments funds and patent offices.
Topics discussed during the congress and trade fair focused on seven panels: Medical biotechnology, Pharmaceutical biotechnology, Nutrigenomics, Biomaterial, Animal Biotechnology, Intellectual Property Rights, Red Biotechnology and Research funding from private sources.

Our main topics of interest were biopharmaceuticals, diagnosis, stem cells, biomaterials, food and feed, art in science, dual use of biotechnology and many more.
Congress was opened by Prof. Ada Yonath - Nobel Prize Laureate 2009 [the best known bio-macro-molecule]. Prof. Robert Huber - Nobel Prize Laureate - 1988, for the determination of the three-dimensional structure of a photosynthetic reaction centre was also among confirmed Eurobiotech speakers. The Scientific Programme included plenary lectures by speakers who are leading biotechnological developments, 22 symposia that spaned all colours of biotechnology with invited speakers who are world leaders in their fields, among others:
• Prof. Krzysztof Bankiewicz, University of California, San Francisco;
• Prof. Mauro Giacca, International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, Triest;
• Prof. Jonathan Heddle, Jagiellonian University, Kraków;
• Prof. Jonathan Kimmelman, McGill Univeristy Montréal, Québec;
• Prof. Abhay Pandit, National University of Galway;
• Prof. Nikolaus Rajewsky, Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine, Berlin;
• Prof. Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz, University of Cambridge.
Congress gathered 450 participants from 22 countries.
Participants were impressed not only by the scientific program but also by the accompanying exhibition which gathered 37 copamnies and institutions. For the first time we organized special Technology Transfer Zone - integral part of the accompanying exhibition. Our aim was to present the scientific projects applied for commercialization and to demonstrate practical solutions and options for effective cooperation between science and business.
Another novelty was satellite session ,,How to make money on science" organized with Technology Transfer Center Foundation in Malopolska and Cluster LifeScience Kraków. One of the main purposes of the session was to help achieve direct networking between science and business sectors by presenting various models of technology transfer and by presenting the offer of Technology Transfer Centers - some of them directly represented the scientific institutions participating in the Congress. The session was addressed mainly to companies and entrepreneurs from the following industries: pharmaceutical, medical, cosmetic, agricultural, food, biotechnological, ecological and bioenergetic.
We would like to thank to our sponsors and partners for their support that let us to organize Congress and invite all guests!
