I legami : Conferenza DG SANTE "Moderne biotecnologie in agricoltura" 28/09/2017
Inviato da riccardofr il 26/7/2017 13:25:50 (61 letture)

La DG SANTE della Commissione europea organizzerà una conferenza di alto livello su “Le moderne biotecnologie in agricoltura – aprire la strada all’innovazione responsabile”, che si terrà a Bruxelles il 28 settembre 2017.

Lo scopo principale della conferenza è quello di stimolare un dibattito informato e aperto tra tutti i soggetti interessati sul tema delle moderne biotecnologie in agricoltura e su come l'UE possa trarre vantaggio da tali tecnologie e dall’innovazione nel settore agroalimentare, pur mantenendo elevati standard di sicurezza.

La conferenza è principalmente rivolta a politici europei, rappresentanti dei settori interessati, rappresentanti della società civile, scienziati e esperti dei governi degli Stati membri. I lavori si svolgeranno in lingua inglese, con interpretazione disponibile in francese, tedesco ed altre lingue che saranno prossimamente confermate (ad inizio settembre).

Maggiori informazioni sulla conferenza, una prima di bozza di ordine del giorno e il link per la registrazione sono disponibili alla seguente pagina web della DG SANTE: http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/health_food ... otech.htm.

Dal momento che i posti disponibili per i partecipanti sono limitati, le registrazioni verranno valutate sulla base del principio “primo arrivato, primo servito”.


Cordiali saluti.
