The conference is going to be kicked-off in Potsdam, Germany at the

Investitionsbank des Landes Brandenburg (ILB)


Babelsberger Straße 21
14473 Potsdam – Germany

The venue is located south-east of the city centre and only a short walk from the main station.
Registration will be in the foyer while the kick-off takes place in room AG001.


We recommend approaching the venue via public transport like the tram or regional railway by heading towards Potsdam main station. If you are approaching the main station from the north via tram, you can also get off a stop earlier at the station called „Lange Brücke“ in order to take the quickest route.
If your mode of transportation ended either insight or south of the main station, we recommend making your way through the station and leaving via the northern exit. From there, cross the street, turn right and follow the pedestrian walkway until you reach the address. The rout is, depending on your mode of transportation, less than 450m long and should only take 7 min at maximum.

On the second and third day, the conference will take place in Potsdam, Germany at the

Leibniz Institute for Agriculture Engineering and Bioeconomy (ATB)


Max-Eyth-Allee 100 
14469 Potsdam – Germany

The institute is located about 30 km from Berlin on a site with almost 100 years of history in agricultural research. Today the ATBs vision is a circular, diverse, innovative and sustainable bioeconomy produces healthy food for all, operates on the basis of renewable raw materials and facilitates the realization of One Health for humans, animals and the environment. The ATB is equipped with an efficient infrastructure for both basic and transfer-oriented research. Well-equipped research sites and facilities for biotechnological and chemical-physical conversion processes to produce materials (bio-based chemicals and biochar) and to generate energy (biogas) are used for research questions within the framework of biorefinery and cascade utilisation concepts for biomass.
