Maximizing the impact of KET Biotechnology

The Technische Universität Darmstadt (Germany) is hosting the 6th international conference on Novel Enzymes which is organized by CarbaZymes in cooperation with ROBOX, both projects that are funded by the European Horizon 2020 framework programme.

The conference is a continuation of the bi-annual conference series on Novel Enzymes, of which previous meetings were held in Ghent 2014, and in Groningen 2016 under the auspices of the European Federation of Biotechnology section on Applied Biocatalysis (ESAB). The conference aims to provide a forum for the presentation of the most exciting advances and new findings in our understanding of enzymes.

Applied Biocatalysis is regarded as a Key Enabling Technology for the development of sustainable chemical production processes. The goal of the current conference is to provide an overview on recent developments and future perspectives on enzymology research. Emphasis will be given to discovery of new enzymes, protein engineering approaches (including novel assay technology), and newly developed enzyme applications. The conference provides a cross-fertilization opportunity involving a number of H2020 funded projects beyond CarbaZymes and Robox, such as MetaFluidicsTralaminol, and several others. It´s designed to create a stimulating atmosphere for sharing cross-disciplinary scientific results for the development of next-generation biocatalytic synthesis of valuable chemical products.
