6th German-Brazilian Dialogue On Science, Research and Innovation

 

The German House for Research and Innovation – São Paulo (DWIH-SP), the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Comunication (MCTIC) announce the

6TH GERMAN-BRAZILIAN DIALOGUE ON SCIENCE, RESEARCH AND INNOVATION

November, 8–9th, 2017 

BIOECONOMY: RESEARCH AND INNOVATION SHAPING THE NEW BIOBASED ECONOMY 

How German and Brazilian top universities, excellent R&D centres and leading global companies, as well as German and Brazilian governments, are facing up the new society demands for resources and environment challenges and creating new solutions to shape a new bioeconomy based on innovation.

The aim of the German-Brazilian Dialogue on Science, Research and Innovation 2017 is to highlight fields of mutual interest and spark an exchange of experiences along three core fields: industrial biotechnology, use of biomass for technical applications and finally the sustainable food and feed production combined with healthy nutrition. Furthermore, the event should increase the network between existing initiatives and competences in the frame of Bioeconomy in both countries.
