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.



14th European Congress of Chemical Engineering and 7th European Congress of Applied Biotechnology

17-21 September 2023, BERLIN, GERMANY


Twelve years after the first ECCE&ECAB conference, the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE) and the European Society of Biochemical Engineering and Sciences (ESBES) are bringing the joint event back to Berlin. Experts from academia and industry will again exchange latest results from R&D in all fields of biotechnology, process engineering, and related disciplines. Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Acting Together is the general theme reflecting that today’s global challenges demand the joint efforts of the chemical and biochemical engineering communities. ECCE&ECAB2023 will showcase cutting-edge solutions: sustainable processes and products, new materials, solutions for energy storage, novel therapeutics and other most urgently needed innovations.

The Organizing Committee invites you to submit abstracts of posters. Please find the detailed topics list on https://ecce-ecab2023.eu/topics

The call for pOSters  is still open.

Deadline for last minute posters: 14 July 2023

The conference programme is now available at https://ecce-ecab2023.eu/Programme.

Consisting of 15-16 parallel tracks each day, it will feature sessions on all topics from all areas of chemical engineering and applied technology. Two programme highlights will be the ChemCar competition and the science slam during the lunch break and in the evening of Tuesday, 19 September 2023. 
Jürgen Dahlhaus, SVP Chemicals and Catalysis Research at BASF, our Gold sponsor, and Benjamin List, Chemistry Nobel laureate of 2021 and plenary speaker, gave us their views on the conference and other topics. You’ll find the interviews on https://ecce-ecab2023.eu/news.html 
Exhibition space is still available. Companies may consider taking part in the exhibition and having a look at the attractive packages and options.
Finally, registration has opened, you may benefit from the early bird rate until 15 July 2023.

Join the ECCE&ECAB Science Slam!

Deadline: 17 July 2023


Looking forward to seeing you in Berlin,




42nd International Symposium on the Separation of Proteins, Peptides and Polynucleotides


More than four decades after the inaugural meeting was held ISPPP continues to be a prime scientific meeting and driver of innovation and development on all aspects of bioseparation, ranging from analytical techniques to bioprocess operations. For this year’s edition the Austrian Centre of Industrial Biotechnology will bring ISPPP to the vibrant city of Vienna, one of the leading biotechnology research centres in the heart of Europe.

Novel trends in separation and purification science will be discussed, including an outlook to the future. Researchers that are investigating the sustainability and circularity of separation and purification techniques or are dealing with life cycle assessment of bioprocesses are particularly invited to share their findings.


  • Scientific contribution: contribute by submitting an abstract for a talk or poster.
  • Sponsoring: be visible by supporting poster prizes or students‘ travel grants.
  • Exhibition: present your company and get into personal contact with members of the bioseparation community.
  • Participation: join us, network and learn about the latest trends in the field.
