Our human practices efforts centered around our collaboration with Synenergene, an organisation dedicated to fostering responsible research and innovation in synthetic biology. This year and last year, they selected a small group of iGEM teams to conduct real-time technology assessments of their projects, in which teams investigate potential applications and implications of their technology. Specifically, we developed short-term and long-term secnarios that describe how our consortium-based bioproduction technology could be developed and embedded in society. These scenarios will be used by Synenergene’s partners in workshop settings with various stakeholders, with the ultimate goal of ‘developing a socially robust SynBio innovation agenda.’ Besides the application scenarios, we also explored the potential wider problematic impacts of the development of our consortium technology in so-called techno-moral vignettes. Lastly, we presented our research at the stakeholder symposium on synthetic biology organised by the RIVM, where policy-makers and other government representatives engaged in debate with us and each other about the coming impact of synbio.
