Biotech & Sustainability

While Biotech develops breakthrough ways to fight diseases, feed the hungry, have safer, cleaner and more efficient industrial manufacturing processes, sustainability looks to protect our natural environment, human and ecological health, while driving innovation and not compromising our way of life. Our speakers are experienced in both and will gladly share their ways. Join us October 17 at 18:00-21:00 at TechHub Riga Kronvalda bulvaris 4, Riga.
