The Vienna Institute of Biotechnology (VIBT)

OxiZymes 2014 will be hosted by the Vienna Institute of Biotechnology of  BOKU - University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria.

The VIBT integrates the Departments of Applied Genetics and Cell Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Food Sciences and Technology, and Nanobiotechnology, and has a close association with the Department of Material Sciences and Process Engineering. The spectrum of activities ranges from basic research to the development of viable technologies. With its integration of biosciences, engineering sciences, business and management studies the VIBT is designed as a technology-oriented supplement to the pure science-oriented biotechnology centres.

The campus of VIBT consists of three adjacent buildings, the meeting will be held in the "Armin Szilvinyi House" with the entrance in Muthgasse 18 (see walking instructions from the closest underground station below).
