Launching the event EuropaBio Secretary General Nathalie Moll stated:  “European Biotech Week is an opportunity for all Europeans to communicate and learn more about what biotechnology can and is already doing to improve our everyday lives. In Europe we have the capabilities and scientific excellence in place to be a world leader in biotechnology. We aim to kick start a sustained and open dialogue with European citizens to better explore how exactly biotechnology and our bioeconomy, already worth €2 trillion and employing an estimated 22 million people, is contributing to the improvement of our daily lives. Biotechnology is a technology developed for people by people and we hope all players involved in biotechnology will join us during the 1st week of October every year to showcase just that.” 


From 2013 onwards, European Biotech Week aims to showcase and share the greatest biotech innovation and discoveries that are continuing to take place right across Europe today.  It will provide a unique opportunity for scientists, policy makers, businesses, students and the general public to come together and share stories of how biotech has benefited their lives and what lies ahead for this innovative and dynamic industry.


Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, Máire Geoghegan-Quinn welcomed the EuropaBio initiative: “I very much welcome the launch of European Biotech week. Crick and Watsons' breakthrough discovery sixty years ago opened up a whole new area of scientific research. They laid the foundations for cutting edge European research that is now enabling scientists to develop medicines tailored to the specific needs of individual patients, to find more efficient ways to use scarce resources like water and to develop new ways of producing essential chemicals and materials while protecting our environment. Europe is in the lead in many of these areas, and our biotechnology industries have an important role to play in Europe's economic growth and provision of high quality, long term employment across a range of sectors. This is why we support biotechnology research through the Framework Programme, and as a signal of continued support, biotechnology has been identified as one of the Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) that will be supported under Horizon 2020.“


Jan Wisse, Chair of the EuropaBio National Associations Council (NAC) believes that the time is right for a more public dialogue to take place in Europe regarding biotechnology:  “Biotechnology has the ability to be the foremost driver of economic recovery in Europe. Indeed it is an industry that uniquely sits at the intersection of economic prosperity and enhancement of quality of life.  But is up to our industry leaders to reach out to the public and better communicate the benefits that biotech is bringing to our everyday lives, not only in providing much required financial stimulus but in everyday needs such as our feeding, fueling and healing”.

My name is Jessica Luis, and I base in USA...My life is back!!! After 1 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Mohammed, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mohammed's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr Mohammed, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man...

'After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again.
