Meet the Author

BioVision, The World Life Sciences Forum, is an international platform for reflection, dialogue, debate and recommendations regarding the major challenges facing Life Sciences. BioVision's two defining features are:

  • Bringing together key players from three sectors: science, society and industry
  • Simultaneously examining health, agriculture and nutrition, environment, and their interactions

BioVision also communicates information to the general public concerning Life Sciences and their applications.
The World Life Sciences Forum is held every year alternately in Lyon, France, and in Alexandria, Egypt. Chaired jointly by Mr. Raymond Barre (former Vice President of the European Commission and French Prime Minister) and Prof. Federico Mayor (President of the Fundaciultura de Paz and former Head of UNESCO), the Forum is supported by numerous governments, the European Commission, the European Parliament, large international organizations including WHO, FAO, UNESCO, UNEP, UNICEF, and OECD, as well as a variety of NGOs. The Forum also draws on the expertise of 20 Nobel Laureates, and has consistently fostered open debate and exchange between science, society at large, and industry on vital issues facing Life Sciences.
