Human biotechnologies is the subject of the next Emerging and Disruptive Technology Assessment Symposium (EDTAS), in Adelaide on 3-4 May.

The symposium will be hosted by Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group, co-hosted by the University of Adelaide and funded by the Next Generation Technologies Fund.

Biotechnology is a rapidly expanding field of research and development that has the potential to transform many aspects of the world around us.

The symposium will explore emerging and disruptive trends in human biotechnologies with the aim of understanding and shaping the long-term vision for Defence and national security interests.

The event will consider human biotechnologies in the 2040 timeframe, examining their application for human measurement and modification. A key outcome will be a 'big picture' assessment report developed through the workshop contributions of all attendees.

Attendance is by arrangement only.
