Conference Date: 09-May-2012
From 9-11 May 2012, the conference Towards a sustainable bio-based society: aligning scientific and societal agendas for bio-innovation will take place in Amsterdam.
This conference is organized by CSG in collaboration with the European Science Foundation (ESF), the ESRC Genomics Network (EGN, United Kingdom) and GEN-AU (Austria).
Bringing together participants from academia (senior experts as well as early stage researchers), industry and policy, this international, interdisciplinary conference will:
- identify key trends in the co-evolution of contemporary biosocieties on the one hand and life science research on the other
- explore the opportunities, challenges and concerns for society at large arising from these trends
- develop a roadmap towards a sustainable bio-based economy through the alignment of scientific and societal agendas.
