The First Scientific Conference Committed to Probiotics


(since 2000)

“where movers and shakers of probiotic science meet”

At IPC2024 – scientists from academia and industry present current advances in the research, production and use of probiotics, prebiotics, microbiome modulators, pharmabiotics, live biotherapeutic products, postbiotics, psychobiotics and provide insights in their role in maintaining health and preventing diseases.

The 17th International Scientific Conference on Probiotics, Prebiotics, Gut Microbiota and Health – IPC2024 will be held during the 18th – 20th June 2024
in Prague, Czechia.

The goal of conference is to provide a scientific forum for all stakeholders of probiotics and prebiotics and to enable the interactive exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge. The conference is focused on evidence-based benefits, health claims proven in scientific experiments and clinical trials.

New scientific evidences that support or question the efficiency of already existing or prospective substances and applications will be conferred. In addition novel strains, controversial but scientifically solid ideas, approaches and visions will be presented as well.

Further to its scientific content, IPC2024 is a networking event. It is a unique opportunity to meet all the stakeholders of probiotics and prebiotics.

Participants will meet those who influenced the past, influence the present and most importantly will shape the future of probiotics and prebiotics by means of basic research, clinical trials, regulatory efforts or development of industrial technology. Initiation of cross-boarder co-operations between scientists and institutions will be also facilitated.
