POSTPONED: Promoting and Safeguarding Innovation in the Bioeconomy
Due to precautionary measures and CDC guidance related to the COVID-19 pandemic, this event has been postponed. We appreciate your understanding.
The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) invites you to attend the second event in our Synthetic Biology: The Ongoing Technology Revolution Series. This event will discuss synthetic biology’s potential to drive both economic growth and positive social change. It will also consider the risks associated with synthetic biology and opportunities to manage those risks while simultaneously accelerating innovation throughout the bioeconomy.
Synthetic Biology: The Ongoing Technology Revolution Series.
Emerging technologies—such as artificial intelligence, quantum computing, 5G, and synthetic biology—drive security and economic competition and are increasingly shaping national strategies. To develop an effective strategy for synthetic biology, policy makers and the general public need a better understanding of synthetic biology’s underlying capabilities, state of development, and diverse applications. Through a series of four symposia, CSIS will explore synthetic biology’s wide-ranging applications—from advanced microelectronics and materials to nutrition and cosmetics —and opportunities to shape its future development in support of U.S. security and economic interests. This series will include targeted discussions on synthetic biology’s:
- Present and future potential as a critical emerging technology;
- Economic and societal implications;
- National security opportunities and risks; and
- Implications for emerging technology policy.
CSIS hopes you will join us for our second event on March 17th and will tune in to watch past events, which are available online.This series of events is sponsored by Ginkgo Bioworks, Inc.
