Student Competition Logo


The first annual Biotechnical Design Competition is organised by the European Society for Biochemical Engineering Sciences (ESBES) in cooperation with the American Chemical Society's Biochemical Technology Division (ACS-BIOT). 


Six teams, composed of three graduate students each, recently submitted their reports for this first competition. Seven of the eighteen participating students were from the USA, and six countries were represented in total. The names of the three Finalist teams will be announced at the upcoming ACS meeting in San Francisco. These three teams will receive support to travel to the 2017 ESBES meeting in Barcelona Spain to compete in a "Finals" competition. We would like to recognize all of the eighteen graduate students who worked so hard on their projects and were the "pioneers" for this first annual competition.

Would you like to find out the final outcome? Then please join us in Barcelona for the awards presentations.
