On behalf of the Scientific Committee, I’m pleased to announce the 7th “Annual International Symposium on Biosafety and Biosecurity: Future Trends and Solutions” to be held at Palazzo Greppi, Milan (Italy) from March 22 to 24, 2017.
This International Symposium offers a unique opportunity for biosafety and biosecurity professionals to discuss issues in the field of biorisk management, biohazardous waste management and other laboratory biosafety and biosecurity issues in light of emerging and re-emerging diseases in the World. According to the Scientific Committee, the new format will be a sort of interactive workshop providing the Experts involved with original and productive sparks. Accordingly, the event is intended to represent a sort of working group/expert meeting among technicians that freely share new ideas and provide practical solutions in the field of biosafety and biosecurity, including on sensitive topics, in a “secure” and private atmosphere.
Recent natural events that can turn into non-natural, invite us to investigate new solutions in biorisk management. In particular, they urge that the need for strengthened collaboration between biosafety and biosecurity professionals is to be addressed.
To achieve these results the Symposium will be organized with limited number of participants. Experts interested in participating are invited to send their CV to the Scientific Secretariat for registration.
