NEW DATES !! GreenWin's 6th edition of International Conferences on Green Chemistry & White Biotechnology will take place in Liège on 9 & 10 September instead of 27 & 28 May* 2020

*Given the COVID19 crisis and its confinement consequences on event organisations, we are rescheduling the GreenWin International Conferences on Green Chemistry & White Biotechnology on 9 & 10 September 2020.

GreenWin, in collaboration with ULiège - the University of Liège - , organises the 6th edition of its international 2-day conferences Green Chemistry - White Biotechnology”. It will be held on 27 & 28 May* 2020, in Liège - Belgium.

This year, the focus will be on « Biorefineries: at the heart of new bioeconomy production processes».

The purpose of the conferences is to assess the innovative technology used to boost activities in the fields of green chemistry and white biotechnology around the world, to share knowledge and to stimulate the creation of new R&D projects involving the academic world, research centres and industrial players from the sector, both at regional and international levels.

The conferences also aim at showing the link between research and market.
