Education andPublic Engagement
The integration of project to society and guaranteeing a bidirectional interaction has been and is a crucial concern for our team. We firmly believe that the opinion of the general public as well as expert advice needs to be considered. Hence, both of these inputs have directly influenced the design and outcome of our project.
Science communication has also been a priority for our team. We considered very important the outreach of our project as we think disseminating scientific knowledge can be considered as important as research itself. This way, taking into account the lack of information about synthetic biology and iGEM in our environment, we performed several talks and workshops in order to raise awareness.
