SEARCA, in collaboration with the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA), is pleased to invite you and your colleagues to the following seminar at the SEARCA headquarters, UPLB Campus, Los Baños, Laguna:
Global Status of Commercialized Biotech/GM Crops in 2016
by Dr. Paul S. Teng
Chair of the Board, ISAAA and Senior Fellow, SEARCA
19 May 2017 (Friday), Drilon Hall, 3:00 p.m.
The SEARCA Agriculture & Development Seminar Series (ADSS) and its special seminars are open to the public. It is meant to encourage the presentation and discussion of development and research issues, as well as their implications for agricultural and rural development. Through the ADSS, SEARCA proactively contributes to having a vibrant scientific exchange within, and even beyond, the Los Baños Science Community.
European Biotech Week: Celebrating Innovation
The European Biotech Week celebrates biotechnology, an innovative and vibrant sector launched by the discovery of the DNA molecule back in 1953. The first European Biotech Week that took place in 2013 marked the 60th anniversary of this pivotal moment in history.
This momentous occasion opened the door to a better understanding of the world we live in both for scientists and for society.
To provide you with an example, DNA triggered crucial discoveries and deeper knowledge on genes, proteins, viruses, bacteria and stem cells.
Biotech entrepreneurs were able to translate this knowledge into applications for many sectors such as healthcare, agriculture, food, energy, water sanitation and biochemical processing, all of which have changed the world for the better.
Biotech associations are key in helping to maximize the potential of biotechnology. In Europe, the National Associations Council, hosted by EuropaBio, represents 17 national biotech associations that together represent over 1,800 small- and medium-sized biotech companies and organisations.
In 2017, the week takes place between 25 September and 1 October.
It brings together farmers and other stakeholders from Asia to learn about plant biotechnology through first-hand experience by visiting plant biotech commercial farms and R&D biotech facilities; and interacting with farmers, scientists, media and policymakers.
The FX Program has been held annually since 2007. The 9th FX Program was held Mar 2-7 in the Philippines. The CropLife Asia, CropLife Philippines and the Biotechnology Coalition of the Philippines have organized the nine editions of the FX program.
Outlook Conferences is pleased to welcome you all for International Biotechnology Conference, which will be held at Chicago, USA during September 23-24, 2019, aims to become the leading annual conference in the fields related to Biotechnology. This conference has an elemental feature to the world distinguished motive speakers, plenary speeches, young Investigators & Researchers Forum, Poster presentations, Oral presentations, technical workshop, and scientific sessions.
The goal of OLCBC-2019 is to bring together researchers, scientists, engineers, and scholar students to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results about all aspects of Biotechnology and discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted.
This time we adopted the theme of “Exploring Biotechnology to find more sustainable solutions to address global problems.”
This conference offers good opportunities for the researchers and delegates to exchange new ideas, and to establish research and/or business links, as well as to build a global partnership for potential collaboration. We sincerely hope that the conference will help advance knowledge in relevant scientific and academic fields.
We sincerely hope that this serves as an international platform for meeting researchers from around the world, widen professional contact and create new opportunities, including establishing new collaborations.
We are looking forward to seeing you at OLCBC-2019 in Chicago, USA.
Ph.D. Student Forum:
Ph.D. Student Forum is the Outlook Conference’s flagship program and is a premier international forum for biotechnologists and researches to present their work. The Ph.D. Forum will provide an opportunity for a group of Ph.D. students to discuss and explore their research interests and career objectives with a panel of established researchers in the field of biotechnology.
The consortium has the following objectives:
- To provide a setting for mutual feedback on participants’ current research and guidance on future research directions;
- To develop a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research;
- To support a new generation of researchers by offering advice about academic, research, industrial, and non-traditional career paths; and
- To contribute to the overall conference goals through interaction with other researchers and participation in conference events.
The Ph.D. Forum will be held on the 2nd day of the conference, as a full afternoon session during the main Biotechnology conference. Students may apply to participate either as a workshop participant or as a speaker.
We hope you will make some time for this must-attend event in the entire biotechnology sector.
This conference will provide you an opportunity to accelerate your research in right direction.
Looking forward to seeing you at this esteemed conference.
