Danish Biotechnological Society (DBS) is a scientific society established in 2006 in collaboration between Danish Biotechnology Forum and The Danish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. DBS is organised as part of The Danish Society of Engineers, IDA Biotechnology.

The purpose of DBS is to facilitate networking within the field of biotechnology in Denmark, creating links between universities, research institutions, hospitals and companies. DBS represents professionals working with biotechnology and seeks to promote and communicate important issues on biotechnology, biochemistry and molecular biology to the public. DBS organises scientific conferences and meetings on biotechnology.

The conference was organised in collaboration with Danish Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

– Evaluation of DCB11

In general the participants was happy about the organisation of the conference, and the ability to network. Most of the researchers who participated at the conference considered themselves as researchers within basic research.
