About DBS

Organization of DBS

DBS is created as a technical society under the Danish Society of Engineers (IDA). The founding meeting of DBS was held on 10 January 2006.

DBS holds an annual biotech conference entitled “Danish Conference on Molecular Biology and Biotechnology”. DBS is organizing scientific meetings with lectures on topics in biotechnology, biochemistry and molecular biology.

Vision for DBS

The intention of DBS is to create a comprehensive biotechnology organization with a strong academic profile. The long term vision is that DBS coordinate activities for Biochemical Society, Danish Biotech Forum and IDA. DBS will be responsible for the following activities:

An annual two-day conference with multiple sessions and broad focus.

An annual three-day conference with a narrower focus.

A number of day events or half-day events.

Organisation of “Annual Lecture of Danish Biotechnological Society”, organized by a researcher in the Nobel Prize class Representation of international companies in biotechnology, biochemistry, molecular biology and other related companies. Establishment of travel grants for students to international conferences in biotechnology and molecular biology. The organization of activities that can be used to recruit students for the biotechnological sciences. The establishment of student chapters, which can stimulate student interest in biotechnology, building networks among students, bringing together students and prominent researchers in biotechnology, and disseminate information about career opportunities. Publishing a magazine, BioZOOM, and the establishment of an active website.
