To promote a science culture, the IBSA Foundation organises scientific forums. These are large conferences featuring international speakers and focused on leading edge themes in the fields of biology and medicine as well as other topics of interest for the medical community for their scientific implications and their relevance for the general public.
Forums represent an opportunity for students, scientists, experts and institutions to gather together, discuss issues, share insights and learn, a process of exchange that provides valuable inputs for further research and drives knowledge advancements.
