Open Calls/Invitations for iGem-Teams to Work with SYNENERGENE Partners! (Deadline: May 30)
To all iGem teams: Is your iGEM team looking for an exciting Policy & Practices challenge? Would you like to take your project to the next level by exploring it with experts, policymakers, and the public? And would you like to get support and funding throughout this entire process? If your answer is "yes", your team might be an excellent candidate for our Call for Proposals.
The Rathenau Instituut and its partners aim to conduct "Real-Time Technology Assessments" of potential synthetic biology applications. We are seeking iGEM teams who wish to develop both short-term and long-term scenarios for how their projects may be developed and embedded in society. The Rathenau Instituut and its partners will offer intellectual support to these teams as they develop the scenarios in the Policy & Practices component of their project. These scenarios will be taken up by other SYNENERGENE partners in workshop settings with various stakeholders, with the ultimate goal of developing a socially robust SynBio innovation agenda. Apply for support and funding by submitting a proposal! Click "view full Call for Proposals" to find complete instructions.
Teams working on antibiotic resistance, cyanobacteria, and environmental conservation are especially encouraged to apply!
Please send your proposal to <synenergene AT igem DOT org> by May 30, 2014.
