The mission of ISBR is to promote the practice and application of science in the fields of agricultural biotechnology and environmental risk analysis. In particular ISBR aims to encourage research which supports the safe and effective use of biotechnology in agriculture and food production and assists the development of the relevant policy and regulation.
The symposium addresses biosafety and sustainability of applied biotechnology. It brings together researchers, technology developers, regulatory authorities, policy makers, non-government organisations and other key stakeholders. It provides an opportunity to engage with colleagues and leaders in biosafety research, risk analysis, communication, policy and regulation.
