The Symposium agenda along with the reports and short discussions of the most important issues of the presented reports included the Round Table session.
Main conclusions of the Round Table discussion:
The participants confirmed that medical universities, biological departments of universities and veterinary departments of agrarian universities teach Biosafety/Biosecurity and Bioethics issues. But the curriculums are different in different institutions and some institutions do not have developed guidelines or books for teaching.
Participants of the Symposium suppose that development and publishing Ukrainian textbooks on Biosafety/Biosecurity and bioethics are the high-priority problem. The lecturers, which are teach Biosafety/Biosecurity and bioethics to the different universities, supports that the curriculums on Biosafety/Biosecurity and bioethics should be harmonized for all life sciences students.
The training module was created participants of the P633 Project. This module was based on the module of "National Series", Bradford University, UK. The lecturers were acquainting with module in time of the Symposium and have a possibility speak out on the Project web-site.
Some participants noted that capacities of Ukrainian Biosafety Association can be used for dissemination knowledge on Biosafety/Biosecurity and bioethics.
The executors of the P633 Project and Participants of the second International symposium discussed the possible sites and time for the next meeting.
