About This Conference

The Enzyme Engineering Conference is the leading international forum for discussion of enzyme engineering technology and applications. Enzyme Engineering XXVIII will be held in Helsingør, Denmark (October 19-24, 2025). This is only the second time the conference has been held in Denmark since the start of this conference series in 1971. Experts from around the world will present the latest research with the aim of stimulating discussion. Topics that will be discussed at the meeting will be of interest to experts in the field, as well as newcomers, and those that want to apply enzyme engineering in academic research and industrial practice.

Specific topics will include:

  • Computational, AI tools and new technology for enzyme engineering
  • Novel enzymes with non-natural amino acids, new metals, new cofactors
  • Enzyme and chemo-enzymatic cascades
  • Bioprocess engineering and scale-up of enzyme applications
  • Enzymes in industrial applications
  • Enzyme engineering for sustainability

Enzyme Engineering Award

The Award

A piece of Steuben glassware, appropriately engraved for the awardee from Genencor; a certificate, signed and dated by an officer of Engineering Conferences International (ECI), and a financial award of US$3,000 from ECI.

The award will be presented in the names of Engineering Conferences International and Genencor.

The Presentation

The 2025 Award will be presented by the Chairs of the 27th International Conference on Enzyme Engineering in October 2025 in Helsinger, Denmark. The awardee is to deliver an address during the conference, a requirement for acceptance.


The award is based on any or all of the following:

  • New discoveries, research, process or device development or methodology relating to scientific or engineering achievements in the area of enzyme engineering.
  • Outstanding contributions of a scientific or engineering nature in the design, operation or management of facilities, processes or devices based primarily on enzyme engineering.
  • Distinguished service towards the development and growth of enzyme engineering.

Awardees may be from academic, governmental, industrial, or other organizations anywhere in the world and there are no age restrictions.


Nominations are now being accepted.

They are to include:

One letter of nomination which is to include:

  • Curriculum vitae (personal data, professional experience, list of publications and patents) of nominee.
  • Record of contributions, with specific evidence of outstanding achievements.
  • Paragraph citing the key factors on which the nomination is based.
  • Two letters of recommendation.
  • The complete nomination package should be submitted in an electronic form as a single PDF file with the name of the nominee, and should include the scanned, signed letters of support. This file is to be sent to Barbara@engconfintl.org.

No special forms are required; however, the packet must be complete at the time of submission. Questions should be submitted to Barbara Hickernell at Barbara@engconfintl.org with the subject line 2025 Enzyme Engineering Award Question.


The deadline for receipt of completed nomination packets is April 30, 2025.


The Award Committee will review the nominations and recommend a candidate to the Executive Committee of the Enzyme Engineering Conference for approval.

The Executive Chair of the conference shall notify the nominee in advance of the conference, to ensure his or her willingness to accept the award, be present for its presentation and deliver the required address.

Conference Venue

Helsingor Denmark

Just one hour by train from Copenhagen, the coastal town of Helsingør (sometimes known in English as Elsinore) is located on Denmark’s North Riviera and is surrounded by golden beaches and forests. The town itself has many half-timbered houses and cobblestone streets that are lined with shops and restaurants.  As an 800-year-old market town, it has a unique maritime cultural history.

Kronborg Castle

The town itself was founded by King Eric in the 1420s to tax foreign ships passing through the Oresund Strait.  In order to do that they needed a large castle which has become the town’s most famous landmark.  The Renaissance-style Kronborg Castle, known both for its beauty and its literary connection as the setting for Shakespeare’s Hamlet, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  

It is, of course, open to visitors who come to admire its Renaissance architecture, castle grounds, and interior which include the castle chapel, tapestries, furnishings and crypts.  The view from the rooftop is stunning as one can see the Swedish town of Helsingborg, a 20-minute ferry ride away.

The Danish Museum of Science and Technology

Besides the Kronberg Castle, visitors are drawn to the M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark, filled with interactive exhibitions. It is located on an old dry dock along the waterfront outside the Kronberg Castle.  The exhibits explore the topics of navigation, sailing, sea trade and naval warfare.  An unexpected exhibit explains the role that shipping and cargo freight play in today’s world.  The Danish Museum of Science and Technology is where you can find the world’s oldest working car from 1888 to a space capsule as well as the original LEGO from 1958 among other technological items.  The 16th century St. Olaf’s Church is also worth a visit as it contains some ornate frescos.

Marienlyst Strandhotel

The conference will take place at the Marienlyst Strandhotel (Ndr. Standvei 2, DK-3000 Helsingør).  The hotel is right on the beach and with the forest so close, it is in a very unique location with views over Oresund and Kronborg Castle.  It is a three-minute walk from the Marienlyst St. train station and 2 km from the Kronborg Castle.  The rooms offer free Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs and minibars.  The hotel has two restaurants, a bar, a yoga studio and a spa plus an indoor pool, a fitness center, and a casino with table games and slot machines.  Parking is free.

General Information About ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a not-for-profit, global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962 that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Poster sessions will be scheduled for evening discussion as well. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording/photographing of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.

Smoking is prohibited at ECI conferences and conference functions.
