About the Conference

The International Conference on "Nanobiotechnology for Agriculture: From Research to Innovation" from November 20-21, 2017, planned by TERI Deakin Nanobiotechnology Centre aims to develop a deeper understanding of advances in Nanobiotechnology in relevant areas, encourage interaction within the research community for wider application and benefit the society by innovating to achieve sustainability in agricultural practices in India. Applying nanotechnology in agriculture successfully also depends on an effective regulatory mechanism and governance involving all stakeholders. The Conference will provide an interactive platform for showcasing technology snapshots, discussions and deliberations in focussed thematic sessions to understand the innovation space and scope for nanobiotechnology interventions to address pressing issues in agriculture. It will leave the participants with renewed interest in the field by triggering ground-breaking thought processes for future research.
