ABSA Annual Biological Safety Conference
Topic: 60th Conference of the American Biological Safety Association (ABSA).
Special event on the risk assessment of new plant breeding techniques
Topic: The goal of this event is the discussion of risk assessment issues regarding new plant breeding techniques with experts to facilitate the scientific and technical exchange.
Gene edited animals: applications and implications
Topic: With this symposium, the Netherlands Commission on Genetic Modification (COGEM) aims to provide insight into current developments in the field, to draw up an inventory of the ethical and societal aspects linked to GM animals and the arguments raised in the public debate and to provide food for thought about its possible implications from a governance perspective. The debate and results of this symposium will provide input for a COGEM report on gene editing in animals to be issued later this year.
Advancing Environmental Risk Assessment by Accounting for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services as Protection Goals
Topic: Joint VKM and EFSA Symposium. How can we derive operational protection goals for use in environmental risk assessments? This question will be addressed at the Symposium where EFSA’s latest guidance on making protection goals operational will be presented. The Symposium also aims at fostering dialogue and cooperation on protection goals between risk assessors and risk managers. The Symposium will include presentations from international speakers, as well as a panel discussion with representatives from environmental and food safety Agencies in the Nordic Zone.
Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology
Topic: This VIB Tools & Technologies conference will look at emerging tools and approaches in the field of: CRISPR and Synthetic Biology Tools, Gene and Genome assembly, Targeted Genome Engineering and Design, Genetic Circuits and Regulation, CRISPR Screens. The symposium will bring together some of the most highly regarded Academics and Companies in the world with novel technologies in several sessions. In addition to a great scientific and technology program, the conference will provide ample opportunities to network during the breaks, poster sessions, the conference dinner and our 'Meet the Expert' session!
