WORLD BIO SUMMIT 2023


Strengthening capacities for Pandemic response


Following the successful launching of the first World Bio Summit last year with congregating over 70 speakers to Seoul and 1,300 on and off-line participants, the Republic of Korea would like to hold the second World Bio Summit this winter in Seoul under the theme of ‘Strengthening capacities for pandemic response: Preparation of workforce, business and civil society’.


At presence of global leaders from governments, the scientific community, the private sector, and international organizations related to vaccine and biologics, the two-day Summit will be a platform to discuss what we have achieved for enabling a pandemic preparedness and response ecosystem and showcase where and how we move forward, focusing on delivering safe, effective, and affordable humanity’s countermeasures against infectious diseases in a short timeline.
