THE ENVIRONMENTAL BIOTECHNOLOGY STORY
Case Studies from the U.S. and Canada
DATE: Tuesday, May 24, 1994
TIME: 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME
FEE: ALSS/TBC Associates: $75.00
Produced by PBS Adult Learning Satellite Service.
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: International environmental challenges
demand innovatives solutions, and such solutions are now being
developed by the emerging environmental biotechnology industry.
Environmental problems cross national borders and require
strategies that involve several sectors of society--industry,
government, research groups, academia, and funding organizations.
A new live videoconference, The Environmental Biotechnology
Story, will examine the current realities of this global
industry. The broadcast occurs during the Toronto convention of
the world's largest biotechnology association, BIO (Biotechnology
Industry Organization), and will draw its live studio audience
from convention attendees.
