Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of all the Organizing Members, It is our great pleasure to invite you to the ‘EUROPEAN BIOTECHNOLOGY CONGRESS' which will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia between 16 - 18 May 2013.

The congress is organized by European Biotechnology Thematic Network Association (EBTNA) and by Comenius University in Bratislava.

The main aim of ”European Biotechnology Congress” is to share and discuss the latest and other possible advances, techniques and issues, which will eventually lead to knowledge exchange. Young researchers may benefit from the knowledge and experience of senior scientists, and directly establish contacts with them. Experienced researchers and scientists may find a stimulating environment for discussing achievements in red and green biotechnology. Well-known scientists, policy makers, industrial professionals working on different fields of Biotechnology around the world will give talks at the Congress.

Bratislava the largest city in Slovakia, it also serves as the state capital. Furthermore, Bratislava is the seat of the National Council of the Slovak Republic, the Government of the Slovak Republic, national ministries and the other central bodies of the state administration of the Slovak Republic. It is situated in the centre of Europe in the south-western part of Slovakia. The old city and the castle are the best parts of Bratislava. The old city is packed with museums (such as the Municipal Museum which comes complete with torture chambers and the Museum of Wine Production) and palaces (Primate's Palace and the Mirbach Palace). The castle, built above the Danube, was a frontier post of the Roman Empire from the 1st to the 5th century. Since the 9th century it has been rebuilt several times, most recently from 2008. Climb up for the great views and to check out the very interesting Slovak National Museum expositions within. The Natural Sciences Museum of the Slovak National Museum and the Slovak National Gallery on the river are also worth a visit.

We are excitingly looking forward to welcoming you in Bratislava May 2013.

Sincerely yours,

Munis Dündar
