The Agricultural Biotechnology International Conference (ABIC 2014) will run October 5 – 8 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, hosted by Ag-West Bio. ABIC™ is the premier global meeting that promotes innovation in bioscience to ensure sustainable food, feed, fibre and fuel security as the climate changes.
ABIC 2014 will provide a forum for discussion and analysis of several themes and issues that are familiar to everyone involved in biosciences. Each of the four days of the conference will focus on a different theme:
· Global Challenges and Issues related to Agricultural Productivity
· Innovation for Global Food Security
· Strategies for Agriculture Innovation
· Leadership for Successful Innovation
Wilf Keller, Chair of the ABIC Foundation and Ag-West Bio’s President and CEO, says that science will play a greater role than ever in creating solutions, as climate change creates unstable weather patterns, and the population grows. “The ABIC 2014 themes were chosen to reflect the most prevalent questions within the industry, such as, how can the biosciences mitigate some of the predicted challenges?”
