Welcome to ICBSN-2022

It’s our immense pleasure to invite you to the 2nd ICBSN going to be held on 17 to 19 December, 2022 at Hotel Manang, Kathmandu, Nepal. This event is going to be organized by Biotechnology Society of Nepal (BSN) entitled “Biotechnology for environmental and sustainable technologies” with the themes: Energy and Environment, Biotechnology and Agriculture, Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals, and Entrepreneurship and Innovations. For this year’s conference, we have identified the Role of Biotechnology in four themes viz. Environment, Agriculture, Healthcare and Entrepreneurship. BSN which is a non-profit organization established in 2007, has grown to be a common platform of scientists, academicians and students coming from various sectors of life sciences in Nepal and abroad. The main objectives of BSN is to initiate, promote and propagate the use of biotechnology by encouraging basic and applied research, and modulating the technological intervention for a global cause.

BSN hosting this conference will help in bringing together the experts: Scientists, Researchers, Scholars and Students from all over the world in a common platform. This event is aimed in creation of network for challenges encountered today and their practical solutions in future. Papers from national and international authors presented during the conference will direct the effective role of science in agriculture, health, and medicine and industry sector. The output of discussion from this conference will surely benefit the society.
