5. International Conference on Biosafety and Laboratory on November 29th to 30th 2021 in Berching (Bavaria)
plus online participation
With the events and developments of 2020, the topic of biosafety experiences a substantial expansion onto the field of
medical care beyond classic high-safety laboratories. It shows that science, research and stationary treatment of patients with highly contagious diseases all tacke comparable tasks in important
aspects: minimizing biological risks, protecting life and ensuring the continuous operation – especially in times when the recovery of patients and the prevention of infections depend upon robust
research and analytical results being available as soon as possible. Research and medicine are therefore working on different aspects of the same global health. As a result, requirements,
principles and experiences in the field of biosafety are increasingly being integrated into medical research, analysis and treatment of patients with highly contagious diseases.
This year's conference is centred around the planning, building and commissioning of high-security laboratories and facilities with similar requirements regarding biosafety. The range of topics includes building technology and laboratory technology, new standards for high-security laboratories, project reports, public health in a global context, as well as lessons learned from - then - 2 years of SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.
