“The Next Generation of Biocatalysis in Bern” was a workshop organized by the University of Bern, Switzerland on 27-28.05.2021. It focused on stimulating the networking among young researchers and promoting their scientific career at junior stages. Furthermore, it gave the opportunity to PhD students to present their work as oral presentations in an international environment. The innovative format allowed the attendees to actively discuss the present and future of Biocatalysis. Nicolette Czarnievicz (ESR 3) participated in this online workshop and gave a talk about her work titled ”Surface engineering of transaminases to tailor protein immobilization on microreactors”.
