The European Society of Biochemical Engineering Sciences stimulates scientific advances in the field of biochemical engineering and provides a platform for communication, education and interdisciplinary exchange. ESBES serves as an interface between industry and academia and fosters cooperation of bioengineers from all over Europe.



(Bio)Process Engineering - a Key to Sustainable Development

A joint event of ProcessNet and DECHEMA-BioTechNet Jahrestagungen 2022 together with 13th ESBES Symposium

12. - 15. September 2022,  Eurogress, Aachen

Sustainability is the one dominating challenge today. Process engineering, chemical technology and biotechnology are key to solving it: By closing cycles, increasing efficiency, coupling sectors, and exploiting the potential of renewable resources, they ensure to meet the global need for food, mobility, housing, energy and medical care while at the same time protecting resources.
In 2022, DECHEMA, ProcessNet and ESBES join forces: At the joint Annual Conference of ProcessNet and DECHEMA-BioTechNet together with the ESBES symposium, researchers from industry and science will present developments and solutions on topics such as reaction engineering, energy generation and storage, bioprocesses, synthetic biology, education and many more.

Main Conference Topics:

Plant and process concepts; Biotechnology; (Bio)pharmaceutical processing; Circular (Bio)Economy; Digital transformation;Energy transition; Fluid and solids process engineering; Industrial water and wastewater technology; New materials for process engineering; Education 4.0; Student and PhD student programme

The Call for poster abstracts is still open !

The deadline for the submission of lectures was 10 April.
Poster abstracts can be submitted until 15 June 2022.




Survey on Mapping Digitalisation Skills

Digitalisation is a major megatrend of this century and holds the potential to drastically transform various industries and production techniques. However, the pace of adoption of teaching digital technologies at universities is in general very slow, may not meet industry needs, and hence will result in a still wider gap in digitalisation and computing skills.
The aim of this survey is to identify the digitalisation skills gap from both academic and employer perspectives. The results of the survey will assist in the development of a framework that defines the requirements and proposes a structure for the implementation of Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 concepts in the chemical (including biochemical) and process engineering curriculum, teaching material and educational programmes that are attractive to prospective students and prepare them well for future applied smart manufacturing and industrial practice.

The survey will ask about the extent of digitalisation and computing skills and it should take approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete using the above link. The results from this survey will also be shared with the wider chemical engineering community to have a better understanding of the required skills and support the education of chemical engineers.
Please provide your contribution by Thursday 26 May 2022.
