    The 17th edition of the International Conference on Renewable Resources & Biorefineries will take place in Aveiro, Portugal from Monday 6 Sept until Wednesday 8 Sept, 2021. Based on the previous RRB conferences, this conference is expected to welcome about 350 international participants from over 30 countries.

The conference further aims at providing an overview of the scientific, technical, economic, environmental and social issues of renewable resources and biorefineries in order to give an impetus to the biobased economy and to present new developments in this area. 

    The conference will provide a forum for leading political, corporate, academic and financial people to discuss recent developments and set up collaborations.

    The three day international conference will consist of plenary lectures, oral presentations, poster sessions and an exhibition. Companies and research organizations are offered the opportunity to organize a satellite symposium. 


    The RRB 2021 Conference will be held at Aveiro.

    RRB conference’s venue is in the main building of the rectory of the University of Aveiro (UA) in Santiago Campus which occupies a vast area, situated between the lagoon area and the city centre. It is commonly known as a “city within the city” because that is exactly what it is – all the teaching and research infrastructures, central services and other supporting, cultural, sporting and leisure services are concentrated in one single place. This is probably the only place in the world where you can enjoy the architectural achievements of two Pritzker prize-winners in one glance.
