26th National Symposium for Applied Biological Sciences

Due to current COVID measures the symposium, that was originally planned for February 11th 2022, has been postponed.

The new date will be communicated ASAP.

The 26th National Symposium for Applied Biological Sciences will take place at the University of Antwerp

The National Symposium for Applied Biological Sciences (NSABS 2022) is jointly organized by University of Antwerp, Ghent University, KULeuven, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Université Catholique de Louvain (Louvain-la-Neuve) Université de Liège (Gembloux), VUB and Université de Mons. It presents a snapshot of the broad variety of research in the field of applied biological sciences and bioengineering. The symposium is free of charge and particularly encourages junior researchers, such as PhD students, to present their work and meet and exchange ideas across departments and across universities. Besides, it is an opportunity for young researchers to submit their work to the critical comments and questions from an attentive audience, and thus to improve the quality of their own research. Among a wealth of international congresses, this symposium offers a platform to researchers of the participating faculties for networking among colleagues. 

The symposium covers the wide variety of research topics in applied biological sciences, including biotechnology, chemistry/(bio)catalysis, climate change, environmental quality, environmental and agricultural economics, genetics, human health, feed/food, renewable energy and resources and sustainable production (plant/animal). 

The full-day symposium will encompass a wide variety of research topics in applied biological sciences, and particularly encourages PhD students to present their work, meet and exchange ideas across researchers and institutions. It is an opportunity to present your research to a broad audience (for starting PhD students perhaps for a first time). Questions from the audience and feedback on oral presentations can help to improve your research. Prizes will be awarded for the best oral and poster presentations. This symposium also offers the opportunity for networking among colleagues.
