iGEM meetup for teams and supervisors

26 maart 2019
Jamboree iGEM 2018

The best iGEM teams have one thing in common: cutting edge science in the light of carefully considered societal needs. Each year different teams with new participants compete. Therefore, team supervisors and former team members are the conduits for the lessons learned from previous editions. During the iGEM Netherlands meetup on 13 & 14 June in The Hague, hosted by the Rathenau Instituut and RIVM, you will get the chance to share best practices and acquire useful knowledge.

At the end of the meetup you will go home with a toolbox that not only helps to improve your iGEM participation, but may also benefit other educational settings and your future as a synthetic biology leader.

During the first day of the meetup you will get the chance to engage in topics such as do's and dont's, societal values, safety, and how to engage with the public. The programme consists of several workshops, presentations and panel discussions. And last but not least: a keynote lecture by Megan Palmer, Director of iGEM Human Practices!
