Thank you for your participation

Thank you very much for your participation in the 4th Doctoral Colloquium BIOENERGY. We can look back at two successfull days of networking and exchange of information.

Specials thanks go to our speakers as well as the programm comittee and scientific advisory council for making this event possible. 

As soon as the event-reader is finished all participants will be notified. The files will soon be available in our archive as well.

We look forward to meeting you again next autumn 2022 at the DBFZ in Leipzig. The exact date and further information will follow.

Stay healthy until then!

Your event team of the DBFZ


Future researchers, industry leaders and policy makers need to be brought together at an early stage to share knowledge and discuss research gaps and challenges. At the same time, networking between scientific institutions that are already intensively involved in bioenergy research needs to be expanded.

Addressing that demand, the Doctoral Colloquium BIOENERGY was initiated in 2018. Since then, it not only serves as a platform for junior scientists to gain further qualification, but also provides them an opportunity for networking and scientific exchange. Doctoral researchers from both universities and other research institutions present and discuss their latest results and advancements.


The Doctoral Colloquium BIOENERGY covers every part of the biomass conversion chain, from the feedstock to different conversion pathways and their technological implementation, up to the resulting products and services. In addition, the necessary system analyses and measures for system integration were addressed.

Theme fields (inter alia)

  • Sustainable resource base
  • Bioenergy system analysis 
  • Thermochemical conversion
  • Biochemical conversion
  • Biorefineries / Biofuels

Language of the event

The event language is English.

Target Group

The Doctoral Colloquium provides junior and senior scientists engaged in biomass research with a platform for professional exchange. Generally, students doing their PhD in the field of bioenergy are eligible.
