The European Center of Biotechnology and Bioeconomy (CEBB) is developing a unique methodology covering the whole bioeconomy value chain from the initial processing of biomass to end products, through continuous multidisciplinary dialogue between industry and researchers in material science and social sciences.

On Monday, September 25, the researchers (among them, Caroline Rémond, ValBran’s project manager) presented their work. The seminar was part of the larger framework of the European Biotech Week 2017 organised by Europabio (Sept 25 – Oct 1, 2017).

Theme of this year’s event: “Telling the story of European Biotechnology”
