About GASB

The German Association for Synthetic Biology (GASB) has set the goal to establish Synthetic Biology as a key discipline and to serve as the association for this young research area in Germany. With the help of Synthetic Biology possible solutions to pestering questions of the 21st century may be discovered. GASB is open to everyone who is interested in Synthetic Biology: from students to professionals, from academic research labs to producing industry, from scientists to humanists.

The vision of GASB is to establish Germany as pioneer in the field of Synthetic Biology at the international level and particularly in Europe. We aim at fostering responsible research and applications in Synthetic Biology as well as the dialogue in a social as well as a political context.

DECHEMA e.V. is the expert network for chemical engineering and biotechnology in Germany. This non-profit professional society represents these fields in science, industry, politics and society. Around 100 subject divisions and working parties offer a forum for knowledge exchange among experts, based on trust.

As a non-profit professional society we consolidate the know-how of more than 5,800 individual and sustaining members. The wealth of topics addressed in our scientific bodies, events and projects enables us to work and cooperate across disciplines. In our network, future trends in research and technology are identified, debated in-depth and promptly translated into recommendations for action. Our aim is to boost the competitiveness of Germany and Europe as a pre-eminent business location for chemistry and biotechnology, to position chemical engineering, process engineering and biotechnology in the public and political spheres as important key technologies and problem solvers, and also to increase awareness of the benefits of these disciplines for society.
