© 2021. All Rights Reserved.The conference explored ‘bio-hybrid’ approaches in which biological machineries including proteins, enzymes and whole cells are being integrated with synthetic materials for (solar) energy conversion, from fuel production to power generation. The conference was highly interdisciplinary and showcased advanced techniques to characterize, design and synthesize the biomaterial interface, while providing a forum for biologists, material scientists, electrochemists and spectroscopists to share ideas for tackling this challenge. In total, we heard invited and contributed talks from 31 speakers, received 27 ePosters and hosted over 110 registered attendants from all over the world. An ePoster session, with both chat and virtual call sessions, and a participation prize via raffle were surprisingly effective at stimulating discussion and participation. There was never a dull moment during the discussion sessions, which extended past the poster sessions and into happy hour sessions after the first and last days of the programme. We thank the Biochemical Society for their sponsorship, which helped increase the attendance and engagement of the scientific community, making this conference a real success
