​The critical issues of modern agriculture and medicine are biotechnologies: the classical one, the modern one and many bio-innovations. Since biotechnology is controversial for many people in our society we shall try to answer some critical questions: Who needs modern biotech and why? Will it be possible to perform modern agriculture as well as personalised medicine without it? And finally: do we have any chance to avoid innovative bio-technologies in order to guarantee food, feed, pharmaceuticals,  diagnostics and bio-materials for 10 billion people in the perspective of the year 2050?

This year edition of European Congress of Life Sciences Eurobiotech will be an exciting conference with great scientific debates and fantastic interactions with political and business leaders, top researchers and investors.
