The Biosafety Institute

History: In spring 2003 the Biosafety Institute was founded as a virtual institute, which is operated by b-safe GmbH. b-safe GmbH provides education and training programs (biosafety courses) and knowledge transfer (network of biosafety experts). In November 2003 a first three day course was held at the University of Berne.

Step by step the program will be completed and optimized. b-safe Ltd was registered in May 2003. A large demand of biosafety information from a variety of classes of customers exist; this potential must be utilised successfully.
