European Biotechnology and Society Online Seminar Series

di Redazione FGB [1], 23 Settembre 2020

The European Biotechnology and Society Online Seminar Series [2] is a part of the ERA CoBioTech additional activities programme. It runs from 30 September through until 4 November, every Wednesday afternoon from 14:00 - 15:00 CET. Regular readers will know several of the speakers and many of the topics.

The series is dedicated to exploring the social, environmental, political and ethical dimensions of biotechnology in Europe. The seminar series forms part of ERA CoBioTech's work on Responsible Research and Innovation, and biotechnology capacity building. Each seminar will bring two speakers into conversation, offering their perspectives on new approaches, methods, and (good and bad!) experiences developed to better-understand the place of biological science in the world today.

With speakers from within and beyond ERA CoBioTech, the sessions will address topics covering the environmental, social and economic sustainability of biotechnologies; interdisciplinarity methodologies for collaboration across the social and natural sciences; the relationships between science and citizens; the consequences for funders and large research centres; as well as practical lessons from researchers at the interface of science, technology and society:

• Session 1: 30 September, 14:00 - 15:00 CEST
• Session 2: 7 October, 14:00 - 15:00 CEST
• Session 3: 14 October, 14:00 - 15:00 CEST
• Session 4: 21 October, 14:00 - 15:00 CEST
• Session 5: 28 October, 14:00 - 15:00 CET
• Session 6: 4 November, 14:00 - 15:00 CET

The series also includes a virtual tavern event!

Participation is free of charge but requires registration here [3].

The event will take place on zoom. A link to join will be sent together with confirmation of registration.
