BIOFLAVOUR 2018 uniquely focuses on the interplay between biotechnology and flavors, fragrances and functional ingredients. The international conference will discuss cutting-edge science and technology and future perspectives in this prospering field, academic and industrial alike.

Driven by an unbroken social trend towards sustainable processes and natural products biotechnology is becoming more and more a key technology for flavors, fragrances and functional ingredients. As our previous meeting in 2015, Bioflavour 2018 will be again a lively and inspiring conference with top science and networking opportunities. The conference is expected to have more than 150 experts from academia and industry from all over the world.

Final deadline for abstract submissions is March 28.
