August 27, 2010

The Institute of Plant Biotechnology for Developing Countries (IPBO) in Ghent, Belgium is organizing a distance learning postgraduate course "Biosafety in Plant Biotechnology" at Ghent University  for the 5th consecutive academic year. This international e-learning course is organized in cooperation with UNIDO and aims to train scientists and law specialists in biosafety expertise and evaluation both at governmental and industrial levels. The course combines distance learning with on campus training at Ghent University and offers a solid basis to set up and implement regulatory biosafety frameworks related to plant biotechnology, and to assist in the legislation and interpretation of biosafety risk assessment, risk management and communication to policy makers or the public.
