IFIB, the leading bioeconomy event. Bari, 29-30 September

IFIB is the International Forum on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioeconomy, organized by Italian Circular Bioeconomy Cluster SPRING, Innovhub-SSI and Federchimica-Assobiotec. The edition 2022 is organized in partnership with Regione Puglia, Puglia Sviluppo and Italian Trade Agency.

IFIB brings together the main world bioeconomy stakeholders, who gather to discuss and present the latest updates in the new economy based on renewable, biological resources.
