A call to action to bring stakeholders together for an efficient coordinated response across sectors affected by insufficient pandemic preparedness

The Global Biosecurity Summit is the spearhead event of the Global Biosecurity Forum convening stakeholders from business, public sector, academia and civil society to address pandemic preparedness solutions. 

Through a roadmap of events, including a series of three webinars to set the scene for the inaugural event in Geneva, Switzerland in spring 2022. The Global Biosecurity Summit brings together experts across a wide array of sectors to address pandemic preparedness with a new approach, activating individual strengths of a diversified field of expertise.
