Meet CenBio at the EUBCE!

The board and centre management of CenBio invite all partners to join us at European Biomass Conference and Exhibition on 6 – 9 June 2016. The EUBCE is the largest and most scientifically diverse bioenergy conference in Europe, and consists of both the classic scientific programme as well as a large exhibition area. We want to inform everyone about three main activities coordinated by CenBio:

  • Workshop

A side event (workshop) is scheduled for Tuesday June 7 at 13:30 to 17:00. The workshop is dedicated to "Bioenergy Value Chains", and we will present methods and results from CenBio, and open for views from experts from other European countries, as well as debate/panel discussion. We also aim at announcing the winner of the Bioenergy Innovation Award 2016 here. Please join us for an interesting afternoon in Amsterdam!

  • Exhibition stand

CenBio will be present with a stand at the Exhibition during the whole conference.

  • Scientific presentations

The competition was fierce with more than 1000 abstracts received, but 7 out of CenBio's 25 abstracts were accepted as oral presentations and 18 were accepted as posters.

Register to the conference by visiting the conference web site. You may contact Line Rydså for questions regarding CenBio's participation at the EUBCE. We hope to see many of you in Amsterdam!
