The 2013 European Biosafety Event

On 17-20 June 2013 Basel will host the next Annual Conference of the European Biosafety Association, one of the major global biosafety and biosecurity events of the year. Pre-conference courses will be offered covering a wide range of topics, all aligned with the Biosafety Professional Competence training specifications and, for the first time, some of the courses will span two days. In the main conference a wide range of high impact talks and breakout sessions will cover topics such as risk assessment, disinfection and technical aspects of biosafety. Biosafety professionals constantly face new challenges due to changing environments, emerging infectious diseases, developing risk assessment concepts and new technologies. As ever with EBSA conferences, participants will again have multiple opportunities for networking with biosafety and biosecurity colleagues from all over Europe and beyond.

The Education & Training Working Group and the Conference Programme Working Group are proud to announce details of the pre-conference courses and to launch the call for papers as proposals for oral presentations and posters within the main conference. The main theme of the conference being 'Biosafety in a Changing World'.

We look forward to seeing you in Basel, in the heart of Europe.
