ESIB -- European Summit of Industrial Biotechnology 2016

May 23, 2016

Participants at this year's European Summit of Industrial Biotechnology (ESIB) are going to focus on "design" in biotechnology - at an event that not only covers science but also deals with industrial needs and hopes, economic challenges, funding resources or political aspirations. The ESIB will take place in the historic city of Graz in the heart of Europe from November 14th to 16th, 2016.

Hundreds of scientific conferences and dozens of partnering events and fairs are held per year. Most of them provide great platforms for scientific presentations and exchange of expertise. However, the European Summit of Industrial Biotechnology (ESIB) goes one step further. It has not been designed to be another conference or another partnering event among many others. The ESIB is a platform for industrial biotechnology in multiple contexts. It has been designed to encourage all protagonists of industrial biotechnology to think outside the box and in new and comprehensive dimensions.

This year's vision is about design - this guiding thread of the 2½ days event unites major contributors to international industrial biotechnology under one roof to learn from celebrated experts, executives, and entrepreneurs, to get new inputs from politics and funding agencies and finally to develop profitable ideas with prospective partners.

We invite you to seize the opportunity to discuss vital questions and encouraging topics and to be on top of new insights and trends at the ESIB 2016 from November 14-16 in Graz, Austria. This year's topics will cover trends in biotech science and industry, cascade design and metabolic engineering, designing nature (e.g. proteins for competitive bioprocesses), in-silico approaches in modern industrial biotechnology and much more.

The European Summit of Industrial Biotechnology 2016 is organized by acib, the Austrian Centre of Industrial Biotechnology. Find more information about the ESIB 2016 at http://www.esib.at

#568 Poker Face Psychology
Anyone who's seen pop culture depictions of poker might think statistics and math is the only way to get ahead. But no, there's psychology too. Author Maria Konnikova took her Ph.D. in psychology to the poker table, and turned out to be good. So good, she went pro in poker, and learned all about her own biases on the way. We're talking about her new book "The Biggest Bluff: How I Learned to Pay Attention, Master Myself, and Win".

Uncounted
First things first: our very own Latif Nasser has an exciting new show on Netflix. He talks to Jad about the hidden forces of the world that connect us all. Then, with an eye on the upcoming election, we take a look back: at two pieces from More Perfect Season 3 about Constitutional amendments that determine who gets to vote. Former Radiolab producer Julia Longoria takes us to Washington, D.C. The capital is at the heart of our democracy, but it's not a state, and it wasn't until the 23rd Amendment that its people got the right to vote for president. But that still left DC without full representation in Congress; D.C. sends a "non-voting delegate" to the House. Julia profiles that delegate, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, and her unique approach to fighting for power in a virtually powerless role. Second, Radiolab producer Sarah Qari looks at a current fight to lower the US voting age to 16 that harkens back to the fight for the 26th Amendment in the 1960s. Eighteen-year-olds at the time argued that if they were old enough to be drafted to fight in the War, they were old enough to have a voice in our democracy. But what about today, when even younger Americans are finding themselves at the center of national political debates? Does it mean we should lower the voting age even further? This episode was reported and produced by Julia Longoria and Sarah Qari. Check out Latif Nasser's new Netflix show Connected here. Support Radiolab today at Radiolab.org/donate.
