Berkeley Biosafety and Biodiversity Workshop

December 11-12, 2008
Berkeley, California 
Helzel Board Room
Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley

As socioeconomic and environmental issues become increasingly integrated, innovative policy solutions are required to identify and address the complex nexus between society and environment. Serving as models for other political jurisdictions, California and the European Union have helped define the forefront of environmental policy solutions. The aim of this workshop is to bring together representatives from the US and the EU in academia, industry, the NGO-sector, and government in order to examine regulatory approaches to addressing biodiversity and biosafety issues in light of climate change. 

The workshop will take place at Haas School of Business on the UC Berkeley Campus from December 11-12. A list of invited participants and discussion topics is here
