Save the date: CLIB International Conference CIC2022, 1. & 2. February 2022


From 1 to 2 February 2022, the CLIB International Conference will take place at the Lindner Congress Hotel in Düsseldorf.
Under the title “Technologies for a bio-industrial (r)evolution” we will discuss with you how bio-, information- and production-technology will change and revolutionise industry in the coming years.


The biological transformation of industry is still in its infancy, but it will fundamentally change the way we produce in the coming years. This does not only concern the conversion of the raw material base from fossil to renewable resources, which is an enormous change in itself. Product design and production processes will also change to meet the demands for sustainable and climate-neutral products.


Biotechnology, and synthetic biotechnology in particular, will play an important role here, as they have the potential to make completely new products and properties accessible. Digitalisation and artificial intelligence, on the other hand, can help to drastically accelerate development processes, increase efficiencies and enable new business models. Enormous changes are also on the horizon in the area of production technology due to more flexible and modular process concepts. The efficient scaling of new processes is also an important building block on the path to the biological transformation of industry. Across the board, the topics of circularity and sustainability are of great importance in all development and production steps. Only if products are optimally recyclable and production processes run with optimal use of resources can climate and sustainability goals be achieved.


The following topics will be addressed:

  • Synthetic biology and enzyme development
  • Impact of AI and big data on biotech advances
  • Optimising biotech processes in large and small scale
  • Next generation process concepts
  • Sustainability and circularity  in biotechnological processes
  • Young innovations emerging from academic research: Final of the G-BiB competition


The CIC has established itself during the past years as a platform to initiate partnerships along value chains in the bio- and circular economy. Come join us on-site in Düsseldorf or online in February 2022!


Please mark your calendars, more information will follow soon!

The registration will open in November 2021.
