1 1 st Brazil-Israel Biotechnology Business Roundtable September 28 th to October 2 nd, 2015 Rafain Palace Hotel Convention Center - Foz do Iguaçu, PR Organized by: Brazilian Society of Plant Physiology - BSPP Israeli Society of Plant Sciences - ISPS Supoported by: Universidade Tecnológica Federal do Paraná - UTFPR Universidade Estadual do Oeste do Paraná - UNIOESTE Universidade Federal da Fronteira Sul - UFFS Operational Support: Equalizee Eventos
2 ExpoSBFV 2015 The ExpoSBFV 2015 is an opportunity put together by the Brazilian Society of Plant Physiology (BSPP) that allows suppliers and distributers of equipment, scientific material and books, to present their products, revise concepts, learn new market trends, launch new products and conduct good business. ExpoSBFV 2015 makes part of the XV Brazilian Congress of Plant Physiology (BCPP ), which will be held at the Rafain Palace Hotel Convention Centre, in Foz do Iguaçu from the 28 th September until the 2 nd October 2015 and, will be an event of extreme importance to the participants with regards to the sharing of information and knowledge, the establishment of partnerships and for updating their respective areas and sub-areas of expertise. The board of the BSPP expects the participation of approximately 1500 congressmen, including researchers from the national and international scientific community and postgraduate and undergraduate students from the areas of Plant Physiology, Plant Biochemistry, Plant Molecular Biology, Botany, Ecology, Plant Nutrition, Irrigation, Post-Harvest and Plant Production among others. The 1 st Brazilian-IsraeliPlant Science Conference (1 st BIPSC) will take place in conjunction with the XV BCPP, this binational event, held in partnership with the Israeli Society of Plant Sciences (ISPS), aims to promote the creation and sharing of information and stimulate collaborative studies between Israeli and Brazilian researchers, students and professionals. Other societies from around the world have held binational meetings with great success. It is to our great satisfaction that the ISPS has accepted the invitation to co-host this scientific meeting and we believe that it will be auspicious. The program of lectures for the XV BCPP and 1 st BIPSC will be common to both events, which will have as its central theme of discussion "Innovation in Plant Physiology and its social impact". Much is expected of science s role in the resolution of forthcoming problems and there is the need to discuss what role Plant Physiology can play in solving the demands of society, such as, how to feed and nourish 10 billion people by In the same manner, the American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB), at the Plant Biology 2014 meeting, dealt with the theme food security as the 21st century challenge. In addition, the International Association for the Plant Protection Sciences (IAPPS) will be addressing the same theme in 2015, at the 18th International Plant Protection Congress. Likewise, The Global Plant Council, to which the BSPP is linked alongside over 25 other plant science societies, has as its focus to discuss and propose solutions to critical global issues, such as food security, energy availability, climate change, health and well being, sustainability and environmental protection. Accordingly, the opening plenary lecture at our event will be given by the renowned Israeli plant physiologist Professor Jonathan Gressel, and is provisionally titled: "Getting plant physiology out of the lab to put nails in Malthus's coffin".
3 In this same direction, with the objective of bringing together the industrial research sector of Brazil and Israel, the 1 st Brazil-Israel Business Roundtable in Biotechnology (1 st BIBRIB) will be held during the XV BCPP and 1 st BIPSC. This will start with an opening plenary lecture on the success of the Israeli innovation model, followed by a debate table (talk show) with the purpose of offering to the participants the opportunity to discuss issues with specialist invited guests, on subjects related to research, development, technology and innovation (R&D&T&I). Then there will be a brunch, a time to promote greater interaction between the participants and allow the exchange of contacts. On the same day, in the afternoon, there will be roundtables of academia-business/investor interaction. The event s objective is to bring various benefits to the participants, such as technology transfer, development of company business, to make partnerships in technological innovation projects possible and to let the companies know the supply and demand of scientific and technological research assets We aim to adopt the model that the Observatório Sesi/Senai/IEL has followed for the implementation of the Biotechnology Agroindustrial Roundtable in Paraná. The target audience is the congressmen of the XV BCPP and 1 st BIPSC, entered for the roundtable, as well as businessmen, professionals, specialists and researchers that work in the Biotechnology and Plant Physiology areas. Taking as its starting point the XIV BCPP (Poços de Caldas, MG, 2013), the Organizing Committee of the XV BCPP, 1 st BIPSC and 1 st BIBRIB hopes to hold an event to match not only the last, but others promoted by BSPP. The scientific program is comprehensive, and includes the participation of renowned speakers from Brazil, Israel and other countries, presentation of work and dissemination of research advances, new technologies and equipments and innovations, contributing to the development of Plant Physiology and other related areas. Finally, the BRAZILIAN CONGRESS OF PLANT PHYSIOLOGY, THE 1 st BRAZILIAN-ISRAELI PLANT SCIENCE CONFERENCE and the 1 st BRAZIL-ISRAEL BUSINESS ROUNDTABLE IN BIOTECHNOLOGY will be excellent showcases for your company, we are counting on your partnership and sponsorship in the promotion of these events. Kind regards, Gustavo Habermann President of the BSPP José Abramo Marchese President of the XV BCPP

6 About the BSPP The Brazilian Society of Plant Physiology (BSPP) was founded in It is a not for profit association, dedicated to the dissemination, development, organization and discussion of ideas and scientific knowledge in the area of plant physiology in Brazil and abroad. The BSPP organizes, biennially, the Brazilian Congress of Plant Physiology (BCPP ) and its first edition was in 1987, in Londrina, Paraná. Since then, the Congress has been held following a strategy of strengthening existing cooperation and facilitating new national and international partnerships. Different Brazilian states have been chosen to host the event, having already been staged in the Northeast, South, Southeast and Centre-west regions of Brazil the Congress will return to the Southern region in 2015 where the 15th edition will be held in Foz do Iguaçu, Paraná. About Foz do Iguaçu The city of Foz do Iguaçu was chosen as it has one of the best infrastructures in Brazil for receiving tourists and event participants. There are hotels of various categories, restaurants and bars, with access to the city being made easy through a good road network and an international airport. Further to this, the city is home to a number of famous tourist attractions such as: Iguaçu Falls, Itaipu Hydroelectric Power Plant and border tourism with Argentina and Paraguay. Foz do Iguaçu is located in the extreme west of Paraná, on the border with Paraguay and Argentina. Its natural borders with these countries are formed by the Paraná river (in the west) and the Iguaçu River (in the south). Foz do Iguaçu, having been founded more than 90 years ago, is the fifth largest city in Paraná. Its ethnic and cultural diversity gives the city a cosmopolitan atmosphere rich in diversity. According to data from the IBGE 2010 survey, the city of Foz do Iguaçu has a population of 256 thousand inhabitants and is home to people from 72 of the world 192 nationalities. The city provides approximately 20,000 beds/day, distributed among its hotels, inns, guesthouses, hostels, campsites and flats. This, in addition to its broad range of attractions and diverse gastronomic network, means that Foz do Iguaçu offers the essential components to meet the needs of its visitors.
