Biotech France 2017 Conference and Exhibition


June 28 to 30, 2017, Paris - France


The Biotech France 2017 Conference & Expo will be held in Paris- France from 28 to 30 June 2017. It sets a target to be one of the largest biotech events in Europe and worldwide. This international event will reflect the full diversity of current biotechnology science advances in research and practice that open opportunities for exploitation of knowledge, commercially or otherwise, together with news, discussion and comment on broader issues of general interest and concern.


The aim of this conference is to foster the exchange of knowledge, experiences and ideas among scientists, academics, students, industry representatives and other professionals interested in biotechnology; and works to develop synergies and relationships that further advance the field.
