Europe’s Top Conference in Marine Biotechnology

BIOPROSP was first organized in 2002 and over the past 14 years, it has become one of the most knowledge-rich conferences not only in the field of marine bioprospecting, but also in the field of biotechnology, attracting top talent from Europe and abroad. 


Science meets industry

BIOPROSP unites scientists with industry, in order to translate basic research into applied research with industrial application.

This is an excellent international meeting place for researchers and industry representatives, as well as funding agencies and organizations.
