BIO-Europe 2006 - 12th Annual International Partnering Conference

  • Key life science industry representatives to present at conference
  • The first potential stories are now emerging from BIO-Europe 2006
  • Dr. Jürgen Rüttgers, the Minister President of the State of Nordrhein-Westfalen (NRW), will be addressing the conference on his plans to develop the region as a biotech hub. Dr. Rüttgers is arguably Germany’s leading political figure-head for the life science sector. In the mid 1990s, as Germany’s Minister of Science and Technology, he was responsible for devising and executing Germany’s BioRegio programme, which laid the foundations for Germany’s thriving biotech sector today.

    Additionally, Jim Greenwood, President of BIO will be announcing a new coalition to support development of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the US body that approves new drugs. “We have come together as a broad and diverse coalition to call for a renewed public commitment for the FDA. The agency needs increased support in order to continue its mission as it faces a revolutionary new era of scientific innovation and advancement. Renewed support also will help enable the agency to continue its historic global leadership as the “gold standard’ for regulatory science and consumer protection.

    Düsseldorf’s Lord Mayor, Joachim Erwin, will address the conference highlighting that he sees BIO-Europe’s choice of location as a vote of confidence in the city as a life science location. On Sunday 5th November, the North Rhine-Westphalia state capital Düsseldorf will be hosting a welcome reception for all participants of the conference.

    Also making an announcement at the conference, Peer Schatz and his team at Qiagen, will be holding a press briefing dedicated to “Setting Standards in Biomedical Tissue Management” .This will address the current difficulties seen in lack of standardization in the preparation of biological samples through collection, stabilisation, and homogenisation of a sample; its identification, tracking and storage; and the purification of analytes such as DNA, RNA, and protein.

    BIO-Europe, and its new sister conference BIO-Europe Spring, has a dedicated press office to disseminate news, stories, and conference themes directly to journalists in advance of the conference and as they develop and evolve at the conference. This year there will be more media briefings and opportunities for one-on-one meetings.

    At last year's BIO-Europe in Dresden, Germany, the number of delegates topped 1450, from more than 850 companies, representing 34 countries. There were 167 biotech company presentations, a host of international exhibitors, and 5124 scheduled one-on-one partnering meetings.

    BIO-Europe 2006 is co-hosted by the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) and EBD Group in partnership with European Biopharmaceutical Enterprises (EBE).

    Media registration at BIO-Europe 2006 is complimentary.

    Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

    An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

    Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

    Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

    Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

    Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

    Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

    Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

    Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

    Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

    Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

    As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

    Im Focus: Die Schweiz in Pole-Position in der neuen ESA-Mission

    Die Europäische Weltraumagentur ESA gab heute grünes Licht für die industrielle Produktion von PLATO, der grössten europäischen wissenschaftlichen Mission zu Exoplaneten. Partner dieser Mission sind die Universitäten Bern und Genf.

    Die Europäische Weltraumagentur ESA lanciert heute PLATO (PLAnetary Transits and Oscillation of stars), die grösste europäische wissenschaftliche Mission zur...
