Biocatalysis has seen a tremendous development - especially in the past few years - with major achievements in areas such as enzyme discovery, advanced computational tools for enzyme engineering, novel chemistry catalyzed by engineered biocatalysts, integration of several enzymes into multistep cascades, as well as combinations with metal-, organo-, photo- and electro-chemistry.

Taken together, these advances substantially help to deal with the multiple challenges on the way to achieving a sustainable and energy-efficient bioeconomy in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries and further areas of application.

The 7th international conference on Novel Enzymes will cover the most recent and exciting advances in the field and aims to identify future trends. The conference is a continuation of the conference series on Novel Enzymes previous meetings were held in Ghent 2014, in Groningen 2016 and in Darmstadt 2018.

Major Topics

  • Novel natural enzymes for biocatalysis
  • Enzyme engineering for new applications
  • Enzymes designed for "new-to-nature" reactions
  • Novel tools for enzyme discovery and engineering
  • Combination of chemo- and enzyme catalysis
  • Enzyme reaction cascades

We very much look forward to meet you in Greifswald in March 2023 to enjoy together cutting-edge science in oral and poster presentations! Please be informed that according to our current time schedule we will start on Tuesday by 6pm and end on Friday at noon.

Prof. Dr. Uwe T. Bornscheuer
Chairman of the Organizing Committee
