From Enzyme and Material Design to Industrial Applications

28th to 30th of March 2022
ZiF Bielefeld, Germany

Organized by

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of IBPRO2022, we cordially invite you to save the date for the INTERfaces Conference on ‘Intensifying Biocatalytic Processes – From Enzyme and Material Design to Industrial Applications’ (IBPRO2022), belonging to the International CeBiTec Conference 2022, which will be held in the ZiF in Bielefeld from the 28th to 30th of March 2022. This meeting is organized by the H2020-MSCA-ITN Project INTERfaces and the Industrial Organic Chemistry and Biotechnology Group from Bielefeld University.

This 11th International CeBiTec Research Conference is in the frame of an outstanding series of symposia. It offers a unique platform for a focused, specialized and highly applied scientific research community, and in the case of IBPRO2022 aims specifically for a high industry involvement. The number of attendees is limited to ~120, due to the location, which should stimulate intensive scientific discussion. Thus, the Organizing Committee from Bielefeld University and INTERfaces will select the participants thoroughly, thereby offering a unique quality of the attendees and enabling a pleasant, intimate and interdisciplinary working atmosphere.

The program of IBPRO2022 will be divided into four sessions, with invited speaker lectures from academia and industry, oral communications, and a poster session. The Conference will provide a distinctive opportunity for presentation of new findings in Biocatalysis and Material Sciences focusing on the recent developments presented in four dedicated sessions:

> SESSION 1: Enzyme discovery and design for industrial applications

Rebecca Buller (Zurich University of Applied Sciences, ZHAW)
Erika Tassano (Novartis)

> SESSION 2: Heterogenization of biocatalysts with tailor-made materials

Jan von Langermann (University of Rostock)
Alessandra Basso (Purolite)

> SESSION 3: Intensification of heterogenized bioprocesses: Multicatalytic cascades and flow biocatalysis

Francesca Paradisi (University of Bern)
Joseph Hosford (GlaxoSmithKline (GSK))

> SESSION 4: Out-of-the-box methods: Future trends in biocatalysis?

Martin Schürmann (InnoSyn B.V.)
Bernhard Hauer (University of Stuttgart)

Overall, the ultimate goal of the conference is to create a multidisciplinary atmosphere stimulating the exchange of knowledge between participants and identifying potential collaborations between research groups from industry and academia. We look forward to welcoming you in 2022 in Bielefeld!

LANGUAGE: The official language of the conference will be English for both poster and oral communications.
