4th European Chemistry Partnering
Partnering discussions, Pitches, an Exhibition, Workshops – and lots of opportunities to network

On 27 February 2020 the 4th European Chemistry Partnering takes place for the fourth time, offering Business Speed Dating for the chemical industry and its user industries. The focus will once again be on partnering discussions. Participants agree on these discussions in advance via Internet-based software. In addition, entrepreneurs can present their innovations in short presentations (Pitches). Workshops, an exhibition and extensive networking opportunities round off the day.

Participants represent many different fields of chemistry, nano and biotechnology through to engineering as well as digitization and software. The classic chemical industry of basic, special and fine chemicals is represented as are the processing industry and manufacturers of consumer and industrial goods.

Managing directors, technical and research board members, business developers, heads of laboratories, business units and divisions are represented as are business angels, family offices, corporate venture companies operating in the chemical industry and international venture capitalists. Many Start-ups use the ECP to initiate discussions with industry and investors.

DECHEMA Frühjahrstagung der Biotechnologen
Wie wird sich die Biotechnologie im nächsten Jahrzehnt entwickeln? Welche Trends zeichnen sich ab, welche lassen sich fortschreiben? Und wie prägt das Gentechnikrecht nicht nur die industrielle Anwendung, sondern auch die Forschung in der Biotechnologie?

Mit diesen Fragen beschäftigt sich die Frühjahrstreffen der Biotechnologen 2020. Das Jahr markiert das Zieljahr der Publikation „Biotechnologie 2020“ des Zukunftsforums aus dem Jahr 2004 und 30 Jahre Gentechnikgesetz. Angesichts der zwei Jubiläen werfen Experten nicht nur einen Blick zurück, sondern schauen vor allem in die Zukunft.
