The theme of this inaugural event is ‘BioConnect’ – Biotechnology towards sustainable innovation.

The birth and development of this new symposium is based on the need for trans-disciplinary interaction of students, forward thinkers, researchers and learned individuals from industry, institutions and society. This event will provide a platform where the young biotechnologist of today can learn from the experiences of yesterday and be equipped with the necessary skills to create the sustainable solutions of tomorrow.
