The Annual Congress Biotechnology 2020+ was held at the Forschungszentrum Jülich on October 4th 2017 and was attended by 120 people from different fields of biotechnology.
Participants followed curiously the presentations of the 14 speakers and discussed the importance of the various topics and methods in detail with a view to science and our daily life. Especially, the topic: "Precaution first? Towards an Ethical Framework for Emerging Biotechnologies" held by Prof. Dabrock, met the need for a critical view and controversial discussions e.g. on recent developments in the CRISPR/Cas9system.
We thank all speakers, presenters and visitors for their participation and hope that we can meet many of you again at the next annual congress Biotechnology 2020+, which will be held by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft on October 4th 2018.Please enjoy your visit the photo gallery.
