It takes 36 participants, 350 typical Dutch cookies, 8 exercises, 65 phone calls with the online course leader, 21 speakers, 85 banana’s, 9 assistants from the Biotechnology Department, 8 lab tours and 100 bitterballen to achieve a successful advance course. From 18 – 27 January 2023 the Advanced Course on Microbial Physiology and Fermentation Technology took place for the 34th time.

During this course 36 participants from industry and universities with 15 nationalities participated. The course aimed to familiarize participants with the integrated, interdisciplinary approach required in modern microbial biotechnology. Microbial physiologists, metabolic engineers and (bio)process engineers from the faculty staff, together with invited (inter)national experts from other universities and industry offered a combination of lectures, exercises, case studies and lab tours.

In our courses, BioTech Delft invites a wide variety of influential, international lecturers from universities and industries who present their vision on biotechnology and share their expertise.
