Next Generation Biocatalysis


The 3rd NextGenBiocat symposium will take place on April 18th and 19th, 2023, in Graz, Austria

Biocatalysis and the investigation of the function of enzymes are exciting and vibrant topics, with new results being published on a daily basis. The NextGenBiocat symposium, organized by young researchers from TU Graz, Uni Bern, TU Delft, Uni Groningen and Uni Graz, aims to bring young researchers, PhD candidates, postdocs and early-career PIs together to feature their research in the field of (but not limited to):

  • Biocatalysis contributing to a circular economy
  • New insights into enzymatic mechanisms
  • Light-promoted enzymatic processes
  • Computational tools for protein engineering and biocatalysis
  • Protein engineering to improve stability, activity or change the type of reaction
  • Reaction engineering and biocatalytic reaction technology
  • Cell- and metabolic engineering

Participants will have the opportunity to showcase their research amongst other young researchers, discuss ideas, and create or reinforce collaborations and career experiences.

Poster prices

We are delighted to announce that NextGenBiocat will award four poster prizes at the event! The evaluation criteria will be based on the originality and scientific presentation of the posters. An independent expert jury will be responsible for selecting the winners.
