Why Attend

The Annual European Microbiome Congress has become a trusted learning and networking platform for leading academics, practicing clinicians, pharmaceutical and nutrition companies, biotech entrepreneurs and investors, government and regulatory bodies and industry leaders who require insight into the latest microbiome research, clinical trials and multi-disciplinary collaborations.

Join us for 2.5 days of intense networking, unpublished research and translational case studies.

In addition to the open networking available, our ‘MEETING MOJO’ platform allows you to create a bespoke meeting schedule, promoting productive collaboration; and if you are looking to highlight your recent work to the wider microbiome community, the dedicated poster session is a great way to get your research noticed and further involve yourself with the congress!
