Video: Why all the fuss about public engagement?

I facilitated a 2-day workshop exploring how synthetic biology research is connected to the external world and how it can be opened up and shared with the public at WISB for their PhDs and Post-docs in synthetic biology.

The workshop examined a range of philosophical, ethical, communication, interdisciplinary and societal issues in synthetic biology.

In their words “Our researchers gained an understanding of key theories and methods used in a wide variety of science communication, bioart, and speculative design projects that deal with synthetic biology and are intended to ignite thoughtful exchange and debate.”

A small video of the workshop made its way to the web.
