CSBE/SCGAB (Canadian Society for Bioengineering/La Société Canadienne de Génie Agroalimentaire et de Bioingénierie) is the technical Society of choice for all professionals and students with an interest in the application of scientific and engineering principles for the sustainable production of food, bioproducts, and bioenergy.
The 2019-2020 year will go by quickly, so let’s jump right into it!
Our first CSBE council meeting of 2019-2020 was held during the annual general meeting and conference in Vancouver. The conference sessions were well-attended with sessions ranging from Bioenergy & Bioproducts to Policy & Economics around the theme “Biosystems for Clean Technology and Low Carbon Economy”. I had the pleasure of judging the student oral competition which brought things full circle for me since, the last time Vancouver hosted the CSBE conference in 2008, I was a student in that competition.
