We are pleased to announce the second edition of the VIB Conference ‘Emerging applications of microbes’. This international conference will take place 7-8 December 2022 in the beautiful historic city of Leuven.

The field of microbiology is moving exceptionally fast, in part because it can take full advantage of the new developments in microscopy, computational biology, synthetic biology, biomaterials, and single-cell technologies.

The new breakthroughs and technologies in microbiology not only allow a better basic understanding of microbes and life in general, they also open new routes in applied and industrial microbiology. This conference is specifically aimed at the links between the newest knowledge and applications.

We aim to provide you with a platform to discuss and exchange ideas with fellow researchers with session topics such as:

  • Applications in agriculture/in mitigation of climate change

  • New tech for microbial synthetic biology/ or applications

  • Applications in Human Health

  • Microorganism as a source of novel biomaterials

  • Applications in circular economy
