Barriers and Enablers of Biotechnology in the Current Global Market Nov 14 2013
Conference: United Kingdom [in English]

Biotechnology in the twenty-first century has impacted almost every aspect of human life from medicine to food, fuel and environmental control with major implications on present and future economic expectations. The emergence of new markets has led to the spread of biotechnology well beyond the borders of a few countries, creating a global enterprise.
The enablers and barriers to the future sustained global success in biotechnology include innovation in technology, economic and regulatory frameworks as well as social, political and environmental factors.
This conference attempts to address these issues and examines the ways that industry and academia could harness the future advances in biotechnology.
Poster submissions are invited. Please send a maximum one A4 page abstract by Friday
