Would you like to attend the conferences?

Copenhagen Bioscience Conferences (CBC) is a series of scientific conferences that started in June 2012. The topics of the conferences are selected within the areas of biomedicine and biotechnology.

Who can attend?

The primary criteria for attendance are scientific accomplishment and the commitment to participate actively and meaningfully in the discussions and activities at the conference.

An important goal of the conferences is to bring senior scientists and young and upcoming talent together in order to spark inspiration. In accordance with this, researchers of all levels are encouraged to apply – from PhDs and Postdocs to Senior Researchers and Professors.

Secondly the aim is to create a relaxed atmosphere of free and open discussion and debate across scientific boundaries. Participants are expected to contribute to this goal by active participation.

All attendees need to apply for participation and must prepare an abstract to be submitted as part of the application process. 

Furthermore all participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the conference. This is important in order to create the opportunities and the time necessary for the participants to build trust and strong relations.

Invitation of speakers is handled by the organizing committee, who is completely responsible for the scientific program and for inviting contributors at the highest international level.
