From 9-11 May 2012, the conference Towards a sustainable bio-based society: aligning scientific and societal agendas for bio-innovation will take place in Amsterdam.

Bringing together participants from academia (senior experts as well as early stage researchers), industry and policy, this international, interdisciplinary conference will:

- identify key trends in the co-evolution of contemporary biosocieties on the one hand and life science research on the other

- explore the opportunities, challenges and concerns for society at large arising from these trends

- develop a roadmap towards a sustainable bio-based economy through the alignment of scientific and societal agendas.
