Latest BioProNET News

Welcome to BioProNET

BioProNET is a network in the field of bioprocessing and biologics that brings together academics, industrialists and other special interest groups for collaborative research to accelerate innovation and deliver change.


We currently have almost 800 members who have the opportunity to apply for dedicated funding and attend network events that will allow the community to build consortia to identify key challenges and opportunities in the area of bioprocessing. BioProNET supports early-career researchers to attend events and to develop the profile, skills and expertise that is required by the industrial biotechnology community. Join us now!
