International Symposium on Biopolymers 2020

The International Symposium on Biopolymers (ISBP) is a successful series of symposia on biopolymers that is taking place every two years since the very first meeting in Toronto 1988.

This 17th edition is scheduled for September 15-18 and will be held in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, and be organized by University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland and the University of Stuttgart.

ISBP2020 will focus on microbially synthesized (bio)polymers like polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), cellulose, pullulan, cyanophycin, polylactic acid (PLA), polyisoprenes (rubbers), but is also open for bio-based polymers like BioPET, and will include inorganic biopolymers such as polyphosphate (polyP).

The following topics will be covered during scientific sessions: Metabolic pathways and engineering, production and processing, functional biopolymers and building blocks, material science and engineering, biodegradation and recycling of biopolymers, sustainable feedstock and life cycle assessment, applications in industry (e.g. packaging, 3D printing) and medicine (the latter ones will be the focus of the “Industry day” with reduced registration fees).

Academic and industrial delegates are welcome to participate in ISBP2020.


The website dedicated to this event will soon be available !
Thank you for your patience and understanding !
