The second BioTech Hack for Research & Innovation of ERA CoBioTech organized by the Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR) will take place on 10.-12.03.2020 in the Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the European Union in Brussels. The event is aiming to bring together the ERA CoBioTech community (funding agencies, researchers from academia and industry) with other stakeholders in the domain of bioeconomy (policy makers, European initiatives and projects, general public etc.). It consists of two parts: a workshop dedicated to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) organized as a part of the Biotech Hub established by ERA CoBioTech, followed by a joint status seminar of projects funded under ERA-CoBioTech and its precursors.
During the interdisciplinary Biotech Hub Workshop, the participants will learn more about the concept of RRI and particularly about the Agenda for RRI in ERA CoBioTech. They will have the opportunity to discuss the possible social, environmental, political, regulatory, historical, ethical or cultural dimensions of innovations. In the following status seminar with interactive pitch and discussion sessions, representatives of transnational ERA-NET projects funded in the framework of ERA CoBioTech and its precursors will present the planned activities resp. achievements of their consortia. Last but not least the event will offer the possibility to network with excellent professionals in the area of industrial biotechnology, systems and synthetic biology etc. and to spark novel interdisciplinary research collaborations!
