Copenhagen Bioscience Conference 2017: Where big-data gets translated into knowledge

Wednesday 04 Jan 17

5 reasons to go to Copenhagen Bioscience Conference



1) You will learn how researchers and companies use data to develop new biotech products

2) You will learn about universal approaches to turn data into knowledge and products in diverse biotech areas (health, environment, industry, even agriculture)

3) The conference will cover topics like big data, systems biology, precision medicine, microbiome research, and antibiotic resistance.

4) Participants will return with new tools but also with understanding of how to apply tools that they already have in different fields

5) You will get a chance to network with peers and discuss how the scientific community can learn from different areas ranging from microbes to humans, from analysis to design, from health to environment etc.

Organizing committee at The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability

The Copenhagen Bioscience Conferences is a Novo Nordisk Foundation initiative.

This year’s conference on DATA-DRIVEN BIOTECHNOLOGY is co-hosted by leading investigators from The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability.

These investigators are:

  • CEO Bernhard Palsson
  • iLoop Director Markus Herrgard
  • Scientific Director Lars Nielsen
  • Senior Scientist Irina Borodina
  • Senior Scientist Nikolaus Sonnenschein
  • Senior Scientist and Co-PI Tilmann Weber

Are you drowning in data? Or do you need some new inspiration on how to analyse your biological data? If so, apply for the Copenhagen Bioscience Conference (CBC) 2017 now. 

At this exclusive conference taking place from 7-11 May 2017 in the beautiful northern part of Zealand, Denmark, you will get inspired on how to use data to develop new biotech products by leading researchers and companies.

Today's research and development environment is becoming increasingly data intensive. Reaping full benefits of the data requires a conversion of big data to knowledge.

In order to share information and the newest knowledge within this field, this conference collects nearly 200 scientists, many of who will present their work on data analysis and computational models. The organizers are The Novo Nordisk Foundation and The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability, who put a great emphasis on networking:

“The conference is quite small and encourages active participation, which gives you an outstanding opportunity to discuss the presentations and the scientific issues regarding data analysis and collection,” says Markus Herrgard, who is the chairman of the organizing committee at The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability.

Most of the expenses are covered

The Novo Nordisk Foundation covers the registration fee, accommodation and local costs for all approved applicants. Only travel expenses to and from the conference venue are at the attendees’ own expense.

The conference will cover development of concepts and methods to deal with the big data challenge, applications of data-driven strategies as well as use of models and data in industrial and human health-related biotechnology.

Specific topics covered include both new omics, modeling and data analysis technologies, and their applications in biotechnology ranging from engineering of cell factories to microbial communities and to human disease. The meeting is targeted towards anyone interested in interdisciplinary bioscience research and in particular uses of data to advance biotechnology applications.
