The International Society for Biosafety Research (ISBR) is pleased to announce that the City of Tarragona, Spain will be hosting the 15th ISBR Symposium from 1 to 4 April 2019. The conference will be held at El Palau Firal i de Congressos, Tarragona. Tarragona is about 100km south of Barcelona and is easily accessible from there by train, bus or via its own airport. El Palau provides extensive, modern conference facilities in the heart of Tarragona, a city that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its rich historical Roman legacy.
Previously known as ISBGMO, the 15th ISBR Symposium will build on the outcomes and successes of the symposia previously hosted in Germany, Canada, China, France, Korea, New Zealand, Argentina, USA, South Africa and Mexico. 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.
We look forward to welcoming you to Tarragona in April 2019!
