TRANSFORMING THE BIOECONOMY: BEHAVIOR, INNOVATION AND SCIENCE
Since its founding in 1996 as a forum to assess emerging issues in biodiversity and agricultural biotechnology, the annual ICABR conference has evolved to include research on a wide range of socioeconomic aspects of the bioeconomy.
To celebrate its XX anniversary, ICABR will convene a conference in Ravello in June 2016 on the theme Transforming the Bioeconomy: Behavior, Innovation and Science.
The Keynote Speaker will be Dan Ariely, the James B. Duke Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University on the topic “Irrational behavior in science and technology communication: truth and dishonesty”
The conference will include invited and contributed plenary and parallel sessions in which participants from around the world will discuss the new challenges of the bioeconomy in both rich and developing countries. It will feature a full-day workshop on Financing Innovation for Agriculture, Food, and the Bioeconomy: Business as Usual? Other plenary sessions will cover a range of topics including: (1) When Science Isn’t Enough: Communicating Science In A Complex World; (2) The Economics of Bioeconomy Supply Chains; and (3) Lessons Learned From GMO Controversies.
