The purpose of the Congress is to connect the academic community, industry (food, pharmaceutical, chemical and others) and state institutions into a single value chain.

The Congress is held in the part of Sarajevo known as Ilidža. The word ilidže in Turkish literally means resort or spa, so dozens of hotels and spas are located in that area. The river Bosna originates in that area, which is abundant with springs of fresh water. In some places, hot healing water, heated by magma in the depths of the earth's crust, erupts on the surface of the earth. This phenomenon gives Ilidža a special attraction. In addition, Ilidža is located under the mountain Igmana. During the war, the supply of Sarajevo was only possible through an underground tunnel dug out of necessity. Those interested can also visit that tunnel, which still preserves the suffering of the Sarajevo people during the war years.
