    EBSA21 - Course A - The absolute essentials of biosafety

    The organization of biosafety and biosecurity in an institution where biological materials are handled, be it genetically modified or pathogenic, requires a broad range of competences and abilities by individuals who advise management and personnel on the safe and secure use of biological material. As of today, interested individuals gain these competences and abilities by a step by step learning and practical application process. The present course on absolute essentials of biosafety would like to serve as a starting point in this process.

    EBSA21 - Course B - Risk assessment methodologies

    Management of risks related to activities with hazardous biological material, be it research, development, production or diagnostics, requires risk assessment at various stages of the activity. To begin with, the hazards of the various biological materials need to be estimated. Also, when genetic modification is involved methods and tools such as viral vectors, plasmids and types of inserts need to be considered.
