The second Workshop of the UNESCO/UNITWIN NETWORK will be hosted by BLDE University in Vijayapura (India) during August 6-8, 2020 with a view to explore

“Biophysics as a tool for the development of Biotechnology and Environmental Health’’   



After the successfull organization of the Inaugural Workshop of UNESCO/UNITWIN Network on Research and Postgraduate Education in Biophysics, Biotechnology and Environmental Health, which was held during August 6-8, in Garni, Armenia, UNESCO Chair in Life Sciences in collaboration with partner institutions is organizing the second Workshop of the Network during August 6-8, in Vijayapura, India.

The Workshop of the NETWORK highlights the participation of biophysicists, biotechnologists, Public Health scientists, Clinical & Pharmaceutical Microbiologists, professionals, academia, industry, research scholars, professors, students.
We welcome and encourage students and postdoctoral researchers to participate in the workshop for getting familiar with the modern approaches in biophysics to solve biotechnological (including Agro-biotechnology and Food Safety) and Public Health problems. For more information regarding the abstract submission and registration can be found on the official website of the workshop.


The organizers have taken special interest to encourage students and young investigators through awards for best poster, best presentation, etc.
The participants of the Workshop will get ample opportunity to exchange their research ideas, have constructive discussion with the peers in the field, and establish collaborations. The Workshop will unfold on-going researches in applied biophysics, new innovations and techniques. Thus, attending the workshop will give you an opportunity to meet colleagues from different countries, share ideas and improve collaboration. As the word “collaboration” emphasizes a big team working together in research and preparing science leaders in Modern Life Sciences, the Workshop will also serve as a powerful tool for developing friendship among different countries having different cultures. Your presence and deliberation will make this meeting remarkably successful in all aspects of Research and PhD Education in Biophysics, Biotechnology and Environmental Health.
