About This Conference

Continuous bioprocessing has the inherent advantage of higher productivity which can facilitate implementation of small process trains, resulting in cost-effective, lean, and agile manufacturing facilities.  Impressive technological advances to enable continuous bioprocessing have been made in the recent past and have been discussed at Integrated Continuous Biomanufacturing (ICB) I (2013) and II (2015) conferences.  The range of topics that were discussed illustrates the active and enthusiastic engagement of biopharmaceutical industry, academia, and regulatory authorities.

ICB III (2017) aims to build on the strong momentum generated at the previous two conferences in the series.  The agenda will include progress on the state-of-the-art technologies and emerging trends in continuous upstream, downstream, and drug product unit operations.  Case studies for the implementation of continuous platforms will also be discussed, spanning scale-down mimics and control strategies through to end-to-end continuous processes and facility designs.

The ICB conference will bring together leading scientists and engineers from academic, industry and regulatory authorities who are actively engaged in integrated continuous bioprocessing.  We look forward to welcoming you to Cascais, Portugal, and debating how industrialized our sector can become and the scenarios where continuous platforms will better serve our needs.

General Information about ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962, that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the weeklong research conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe that the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording/photographing of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.
