Together with TU Delft, the Rathenau Instituut has developed a workshop format for researchers working with new biotechnologies. The workshop gives researchers insight into possible risks, and how to reduce or circumvent these.
Explanation in short
- In biotechnology, often the rules and regulations can’t keep up with developments. Because researchers often work with new techniques, it is important that they think carefully about possible risks.
- The developed format gives researchers tools to organise their own workshops with a wide range of participants. This makes it possible to assess not only technical-related risks, but also other types of risks.
- Through knowledge exchange, all participants gain knowledge from other people's fields, and this creates an understanding of each other's values and perspectives on risk-related issues.
