    The aim is to promote developments in applied biocatalysis through science and engineering of useful biological catalysts and their commercial applications in the production of small molecule pharma products.

    I. How to identify, optimize and develop biocatalysts and biocatalytic processes
    • Biocatalyst discovery, optimization and design of new processes
    • Emerging strategies for improving the characteristics of biocatalysts in industrial setting
    • Reaction engineering for enzyme catalyzed reactions
    • Pragmatic downstream processing technologies
    • Biocatalyst production and formulation

    II. Application of biocatalysts in industrial processes
    • Demonstration of diversity of reactions enabled by enzyme catalysis
    • Understanding of the boundaries for application of enzymes in chemical process
    • Recent advances and current trends in industrial biocatalysis
    • Learn about requirements to run a successful bioprocess (e.g. regulatory)
    • Exploit the potential of biocatalysis in the industry

    III. Interactive Exercise Discuss how to accelerate application of biocatalysis in the future.
    Hear the perspective of leading researchers from industry what the biggest hurdles to develop industrial bioprocesses are. Increase your biocatalysis network by meeting colleagues working in the different fields applying biocatalysis (large pharma, technology providers, CROs and CMOs).

    IV. Bonus Material
    • Illustrative work-flow schemes for development of biocatalytic processes
    • Concise list of relevant publications on biocatalysis application and scale-up
