Registration and attendance is free of charge for all.

The discussion will take place online with:

Dr. Anne Christine Steenkjær Hastrup:

Dr. Anne Christine Steenkjær Hastrup, Director at Danish Technological Institute’s Center for Bioresources, specializes in biomass valorization through bioprocessing. With over 15 years of experience, her expertise spans enzymatic hydrolysis, fermentation, and the incorporation of biobased components in Biomaterials. She leads the food grade pilot plant at DTI for upscaling biosolutions, including biorefining processes, biofermentation, and product development.

Dr. Agris Pentjuss:

Dr. Agris Pentjuss represents the Large Data and Computational Biology Group, boasting over 10 years of experience in computational biology. The team focuses on collaborative scientific projects, employing computational biology to enhance biotechnological potential, promote sustainability, and improve bio-degradation technologies. They have developed tools like IMFLer, IgemRNA, SpaceScanner, and ConvAn to facilitate the analysis of biological datasets, emphasizing the role of computational modeling in achieving a greener future across various bioindustries.

Arturs Suleiko:

With over seven years of experience in chemical engineering and biotechnology, this panellist serves as an Industrial Equipment Engineer at A/S Bioreactors.net. Specializing in equipment design and optimization of mixing systems for stirred-tank bioreactors, ranging from laboratory-scale to pilot-scale vessels, their general expertise includes hardware and software development, technical documentation, and direct client interaction. Additionally, they contribute to the Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry’s Bioengineering department, undertaking contracted research, developing system prototypes, and performing calculations/simulations for biotechnology-related equipment.
