7th CASSE Conference

The CASEE Board and the Banat’s University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine ‘’King Michael I of Romania’’ from Timisoara have the pleasure of inviting you to the 7th CASEE Conference "The Role of Life Sciences in Europe’s 2020 Strategy”, 22th – 24th May, 2016, Banat’s University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine ‘’King Michael I of Romania’’ from Timisoara, Romania.


Life sciences encompass a wide variety of sciences concerned with the study of living organisms, including biology, botany, zoology, microbiology, physiology, biochemistry, and related subjects that are closely linked to agriculture – the science or practice of farming, including cultivation of the soil for the growing of crops and the rearing of animals to provide food, wool, and other products. Once produced, food needs to be safe (free of bacterial, parasitic, and viral pathogens) and secure (enough and accessible to all). Agriculture, energy industry, manufacturing, transport and other factors have a negative impact on the environment – hence climate change and biodiversity loss. Understanding these issues properly is the key to humanity’s continued development. In this context, knowledge-based bioeconomy is paramount. Therefore the scientific programme of the conference covers the main aspects of life sciences, including primary production and regional development, trends in food safety and food security, energy, climate change and biodiversity-related environmental challenges, biotechnology in knowledge-based bioeconomy, and many more. The primary goal of the conference is to promote research and developmental activities in these fields: thus, the conference will provide an excellent opportunity to network, share ideas, and form partnerships with agrobiology, biotechnology and food associations, learned societies in agrobiology and biotechnology, food research institutes, universities, etc. The secondary goal of the conference is to promote scientific information interchange between academics, developers, engineers, practitioners, researchers, and students working and/or studying in the Danube region and other European countries.

Welcome to Timişoara, one of the oldest town settlements in Romania! Timişoara was first mentioned in the 13th century as Castrum Temesiensis. The town was the first European city and the second city in the world (after New York) to be lit by electric street lamps in 1884. It was also the second European city and the first Romanian city with horse-drawn trams in 1869. The city’s population tripled between 1948 and 1992. After December 1989, when Timişoara witnessed a series of mass anti-Communist street protests, it has become one of Romania’s most dynamic cities. We are looking forward to seeing you in Timisoara!
