ICGEB, in collaboration with TWAS and through funds provided by the UNTBLDC, offers a programme of eLearning on technical elements under Biotechnology Policy, and includes Biosafety & Biosecurity, Biosafety Regulatory Frameworks, Socioeconomic Considerations, Risk Analysis, Containment & Confinement, Environmental Risk Assessment, and GM Food Safety (see https://showcase-icgeb.elearning.it/ for introductory videos). The content constitutes a blend of multimedia training materials, complete with exercises and tests, to ensure a sophisticated and robust interactive learning experience. The cohesive and comprehensive core curriculum encompasses key technical elements common to biosafety and biosecurity regulation. In this way, participants will be better placed to deal with regulatory issues arising now and in the future from products deriving from emerging and new biotechnologies.
