ESSIB 2016: European Summer School on Industrial Biotechnology


The third edition of the “European Summer School on Industrial Biotechnology” will take place in Barcelona, 5th-9th September, 2016 with a focus on “Bioprocess design and optimisation for the production of recombinant proteins: Concepts, tools, methods and current challenges”. The summer school is aimed towards PhD students and postdocs, preferentially from European labs, and started in 2014 to take place annually in a different country and with a different focus for each edition. The Summer School is currently organized by a network of three partners (University of Milano-Bicocca, Department of Biotechnology and Biosciences), the University of Stuttgart (Institute of Technical Biochemistry), and the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Department of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering). More partners are invited to join the network.

Confirmed lecturers:

  • Pierre Monsan (INSA-Toulouse, TWB)
  • Ralf Takors (University of Stuttgart)
  • Francesc Gòdia (UAB)
  • Martí Lecina (UAB)
  • Francisco Valero (UAB)
