In times when global challenges like finite fossil energy reserves, demographic changes, environmental pollution and climate change demand innovative solutions and substantial structural changes from an oil-based to a bio-based industrial production, biocatalysis will be one of the key technologies helping to take responsibility for world food supply, sustainable raw materials and energy supply from biomass. To find solutions to the urging problems of our time exchange of knowledge and ideas between specialists from both the academic and industrial sectors becomes particularly important.

In these exciting times it is my great pleasure and honor to invite scientists from all over the world to the 6th International Congress on Biocatalysis 2012 (biocat2012) to be held September 2 - 6, 2012 at the Hamburg University of Technology, Hamburg, Germany.

The successful concept of biocat, which will be supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), is due to an interdisciplinary approach integrating the know-how of well acknowledged biologists, biochemists, chemists and engineers from academia and industry.

Since 2002 we have been organizing the biocat conference series, which focuses on the rapidly evolving fields of biocatalysis and industrial biotechnology. The preceeding International Congresses on Biocatalysis were held in Hamburg, Germany, every two years and attracted more than 1800 participants  from over 35 countries.

The major topics to be addressed are:

    •       Enzyme discovery, recombinant production, synthetic biology and design

    •       Structure-function analysis and modelling

    •       Enzymatic and whole cell biotransformations

    •       Bioprocess engineering and downstream processing

    •       Biorefinery and sustainable development of industrial processes
