69. Mosbacher Kolloquium - "Synthetic Biology - from Understanding to Application"

March 22- 24, 2018

Workshop "The future of SynBio in Germany: Challenges, Opportunities and Solutions"


At this year’s Mosbacher Kolloquium, GASB will organize a Workshop. Its purpose will be to debate several topics of importance for the future of this discipline in Germany, for instance Education, Politics, Public Perception, Funding, Industry or Ethics. Any other topic of interest suggested by participants is welcome as well.The goal is to discuss topics in small groups, identify key aspects, arguments, milestones, suggestions and future objectives that need to be addressed and  implemented in order to improve the situation in Germany. At the end, the results will be summarized and recorded to present the views of the scientific community on these topics. The final draft is intended to be the RoadMap for SynBio in Germany for the next years.
