Innovation for Europe – life science meets market application

Biotech Hub Workshops/Seminars for Stakeholder Engagement

While the Biotech Hub Meetings have a strategic focus, the Biotech Hub Workshops/Seminars for Stakeholder Engagement aim to engage scientific and industrial biotechnology stakeholders and empower them to make the most of their involvement in transnational RD&I. The Biotech Hub Workshops/Seminars for Stakeholder Engagement will have a different thematic focus and will e.g. facilitate hands-on exchange of ideas, demands and knowledge, leading to mutual understanding of the needs and strengths of each stakeholder and the value they bring to the development of innovative new biotechnology applications, or generate new skills or awareness of different aspects of research and development work.

The 1st Biotech Hub Workshop "Communication for impact" took place on 11th and 12th of June 2018 at the congress centre in Schmerlenbach, Germany. 22 representatives of projects funded within the cofunded call of ERA CoBioTech participated in the workshop organized by the Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR)

The 2nd BioTech Hub Workshop was dedicated to  Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and due to the covid-19 pandemic organised as online event by the Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR) in collaboration with the Universities  of Edinburgh and Durham, and the Edinburgh Hub for Responsible Innovation. TheEuropean Biotechnology and Society Online Seminar Series 2020 ran weekly on Wednesdays from 30 September to 4 November 2020. Over the course of six seminars 12 groups of speakers shared their practical and conceptual work on social, environmental, political and ethical dimensions of biotechnology in Europe. Over the series there were over 200 unique registrants from 29 countries from Europe and beyond.

More information about the series: agenda, presentations and event reports are available on the event website.


After a very positive feedback on the European Biotechnology and Society Online Seminar Series  a second series of online seminars were organised in the summer of 2021. Over the course of five weeks (from 9 June – 7 July 2021) and five seminars, the participants were delighted to hear presentations from 11 groups of speakers with diverse perspectives: academic and industry scientists, social and interdisciplinary researchers, and research funders. An international audience of 25-50 audience members joined the event live each week, with 139 registrants overall (each recording was also viewed 24-50 times afterwards). More information about the second seminar series is available on the event website.
