International Workshop on trends in S&T of relevance to the BWC, 31 October – 5 November 2010

1st November 2010

James Revill attended the International Workshop on Trends in Science and Technology Relevant to the Biological Weapons Convention, Beijing. The workshop was funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Presidents’ Committee of The National Academies, The Chinese Academy of Sciences, the U.K. Global Partnership Programme, and the InterAcademy Panel on International Issues. The objective of the workshop was to “survey key trends in areas of science & technology (S&T) that might be potentially relevant to the development of new or more deadly biological weapons and/or to developments in detection, diagnostics, therapeutics, or vaccines that could affect potential prevention and response to biological attacks” and the workshop is intended to serve as the basis for the development of a report on this issue.
