SYNENERGENE Newsletter 03 - Widening the scope - Experiences from our 2015 iGEM collaboration
The mutual learning activities between iGEM and SYNENERGENE were continued this year, as we again called the iGEM teams to reflect on the societal ramifications of their projects by creating two types of scenarios. The eight teams that we supported prepared their scenarios with the help of guidelines and personal assistance from SYNENERGENE partners in Bergen and Delft. Our work culminated in the iGEM’s Giant Jamboree in Boston, where the teams held workshop discussions about central issues and dilemmas from their scenarios. Many teams also held events on their own, such as science cafes and public debates.
