Over the past years, the approach for biorisk management has markedly evolved. Rather than checking compliance with prescribed requirement lists, the focus has shifted to performance-based management systems that tailor protection measures to the kind of risks identified in a thorough assessment.Against this background, people responsible for biorisk management in an organization are challenged to cope with an increasing complexity and diversity of questions. The vast majority has to learn their role ‘on the job’ and can build a curriculum through attending meetings and international courses. This Summer Course will provide a comprehensive overview of all the essential elements of biorisk management, strengthening the biosafety practitioners to build their own systematic approach.
