Welcome to The 11th International Conference on High Pressure Bioscience and Biotechnology

We are pleased to announce that a 1½ days online HPBB-summit will be held in summer 2021.

More information will follow soon.


The HPBB2021 conference will, unfortunately, be rescheduled to HPBB2022 due to corona virus.

The conference will be held in summer 2022 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The website will be updated accordingly as soon as possible.

The 11th International Conference on High Pressure Bioscience and Biotechnology (HPBB2021) will be held from July 6th to 9th, 2021, at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. This will be the first HPBB conference in Scandinavia.

HPBB2021 addresses the elucidation of effects, mechanistic understanding and knowledge-based exploitation of high pressure induced changes in various biological systems. The conference will bring together scientists, students and professionals to maximise the application of high pressure technology and to learn about exciting research in high pressure bioscience and biotechnology in the frame of sustainability. Sustainability will be a new overarching topic for the first time in the history of HPBB conferences and we encourage presentations and discussions addressing the UN’s Sustainable Developing Goals. To achieve a better and more sustainable future for us and our planet, the high pressure technology has special potential to meet the SDGs 2: zero hunger, 3: good health and well-being, and 12: responsible consumption and production.

Therefore, HPBB2021 is a great opportunity for presenting and discussing research and the latest developments relevant to applications of high pressure across the HP subspecialties: food science, biochemistry & biophysics, microbiology & cell biology, medicine & pharmacology, and analytical technologies.

The conference will include keynote lectures as well as oral and poster presentations by the attendees, but the backbone of HPBB2021 is the knowledge-sharing forum.
