An international scientific gathering in the North

Below the surface of the Arctic sea, between cold and apparently barren mountain landscapes, there is a bustling biological activity – and hidden messages.

The marine resources of Northern Norway have been the main livelihood for the people of the area for millennia.

Join our flagship international scientific conference on marin bioprospecting and biotechnology.

Discover. Learn. Transform.

BIOPROSP_21 is the 10th biennial, international, scientific conference within applied research within marine biotechnology and bioprospecting.

Travel to Arctic Norway - seize the opportunity to meet with internationally renowned scientists, business delegates, be updated on cutting edge science and innovation.
