Interview with Babette Petersen of Capricorn Venture Partners at EFIB 2016 in Glasgow

**[EFIB 2022: Advancing the Bioeconomy through Industrial Biotechnology](**

Welcome to the European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy (EFIB), the leading annual event in Europe dedicated to advancing the bioeconomy through industrial biotechnology. Join us in Glasgow as industry experts explore the exciting potential of biobased materials, circular economy, and sustainability.

At EFIB, we have witnessed tremendous progress from renowned brands such as Procter & Gamble, Unilever, and more. From automotive to home furnishings, these brands are investing millions in advanced biotechnology facilities, accelerating the development of bio-based materials.

However, there is still work to be done. One of the challenges discussed during the event is improving consumer awareness. This is where collaboration across the value chain becomes crucial. We encourage partnerships between startups and brands, fostering early engagement in the technology development process. With the support of brands, we can integrate market perspectives, bring bio-based innovations to consumers, and drive the bioeconomy forward.

Participating in EFIB provides the opportunity to network and establish relationships with industry-leading individuals, especially from prominent brands shaping the future of the bioeconomy. With the power of social media, even the smallest of companies can now communicate their innovations to consumers. However, it is essential for industry associations like EuropaBio to provide a unified framework and consistent messaging to ensure the dissemination of accurate and impactful information.

Join us at EFIB and be part of the growth and progress of industrial biotechnology and the bioeconomy. Don’t miss this chance to learn, network, and pave the way for a sustainable future.
