15th ISBR Symposium

The 15th International Society for Biosafety Research (ISBR) will take place at El Palau Firal i de Congressos, in the City of Tarragona, Spain from 1 to 4 April 2019. Building on the outcomes and successes of previous symposia hosted in different countries around the world, the goal of the symposium is to bring together academics, technology developers, industry, regulatory authorities, non-government organisations and other credible stakeholders to discuss all aspects of the use of biotechnology in agriculture and food production, including their risk analysis and regulation.  Indeed, the theme of the 15th ISBR conference is New Horizons in Biotechnology: Risk Analysis for a Sustainable Future. The symposium promises to be an outstanding and timely occasion for sharing and advancing understanding of contemporary applications of biotechnology to today’s agriculture and food production problems and we hope that together we will have a vibrant and robust symposium in 2019.
Among several other interesting workshops and parallel sessions being organised by other actors during the symposium, EuropaBio will be co-hosting Workshop 5: "Access to Crop Biotech Innovations: Exchange and Learnings from GM Cultivation in the EU, South Asia, and Africa" together with the Cornell Alliance for Science.
