Summer 2016

Summer - Saskatchewan's finest season!

The saskatoon berries are ripening, the weather is balmy and the Jazz Festival is on in Saskatoon. Half-way through 2016, so many good things have happened already, with much more to come. 

Thanks to everyone who made the Emerging Technology for Global Food Security conference a great success! Solid teamwork, the support of our community and high calibre speakers made this an exceptional event. Attendees from 18 countries took part, and the presentations were livestreamed online. Visit conference.gifs.ca/live to link to the videos.

ABIC 2016 is coming soon! For the first time, the Agricultural Bioscience International Conference will be held in the United States - in Fargo, North Dakota - one of the richest agriculture regions of the world. Register by July 4th to get the Early Bird rate! 

We are planning an outstanding Annual Meeting on September 28th (stay tuned for details); and National Biotech Week has gone global! Learn more in this edition of the Bio Bulletin.
