Conference: Bamboost

The organizing committee has decided to condense the program to one single day for practical reasons, as was preferred by many of the companies. This also has significant consequences for the registration fee that is reduced now to only €100,-

Committed speakers from both academia and industry have confirmed their participation and to give keynote lectures. Scientists and outstanding experts will be covering the state of the art expertise and the latest innovations and designs based on progress in science and technology relevant to Bamboo utilisation, for both food and non-food applications. We are looking forward to a day for interesting information exchange on topics ranging from growing of bamboo in Europe and use of bamboo in the food industry to application of bamboo in textiles and building materials.
