  14. 14. Workshop at SNET In collaboration with Rüdiger Trojok, Nora Vaage & Ana M. Delgado
  15. 15. SNET Questions and comments from participants: Amoug them many Scientist and practitioners in STS (Science and Technology Studies) and TA (Technology Assessment)
  16. 16. “ Quotes or written comments from workshop and panel discussion participants” [sic] Form Personal reflections, comments and conclusions
  17. 17. “Participating in this workshop session gave a firm confirmation “you can do it outside institutions”, there are other methods.“ [sic] “I didn’t know about diybio or biohacking. After this workshop and presentation, I know what it is about and I can discuss it” Successful Approach
  18. 18. “ How do you interpret the precautionary principle?” “ Science and tech are a dynamic process, we need to deal with that. But we have to install systems or tools or simply pay attention to the early warnings, and take them serious, the real damage is when the early warning is ignored, eg agent orange, DDT and others. This includes transparency, participation and democratization. ” “ The Unintended consequences are always the worst and the longest lasting. ” “ Citizenship comes with duties. ” “ How do you deal with Responsiblity ? ” Responsibility Comments on DIYBIO * Good idea to always reference our earlier safety discussion and the code of ethics * Let’s answer these questions together…
  19. 19. License, Rules & Guidelines * Should we develop and share guidelines and systems for licenses ? “ You say that there should be more freedom, without licenses and regulations, but at the same time you use your own academic career or training as a license to argue that you should be able to do this and work on this, isn’t that a paradox or contradiction? ” “ I am worried for you and your community. the community might need rules or guidelines, problems will arise, you need rules. ” “ For a car the citizen needs a license, do we need a diy-bio license? A crash course/induction as requirement for use? Why/why not? ” “ Are you prepared to pay for damages in case of accidents ? e.g. the neighbour child plays with samples and get sick. ”
  20. 20. Inclusivity and Welcoming Critique * Include the TA community * Don’t make the same mistakes as “university experts” “ TA [technology assessment] are shifting to take more part , and be participatory. They try to introduce framing and language, add to the debate and learn hands-on ” “ It is difficult to mobilize people or the general public when they deliberately have been excluded from earlier science or tech discussions because the ‘experts’ want to be the ‘experts’ “
  21. 21. “ I trust a lot more an open participatory and transparent community than I trust government regulators, but only if they have common values that go beyond the technology and development itself. The priority should always be your neighbour and the society, not the technology, if not it’s not possible to keep good safe and ethical practice when they scale. ” “ Why did you skip the Code of ethics ? that was really essential. ” Ethics & Values * Present or mention the code of ethics. It’s always relevant, even though you/we think that we already had that discussion.
  22. 22. Draft DIYbio Code of Ethics from European Congress DIYbio community meeting in London May 2011, diybio.org/codes Transparency Emphasize transparency and the sharing of ideas, knowledge, data and results. Safety Adopt safe practices. Open Access Promote citizen science and decentralized access to biotechnology. Education Help educate the public about biotechnology, its benefits and implications. Modesty Know you don’t know everything. Community Carefully listen to any concerns and questions and respond honestly. Peaceful Purposes Biotechnology must only be used for peaceful purposes. Respect Respect humans and all living systems. Responsibility Recognize the complexity and dynamics of living systems and our responsibility towards them. Accountability Remain accountable for your actions and for upholding this code.
  23. 23. “ What’s the aim of DIYbio ? ” “ so many questions are left open, what about government interest, FBI, regulation ? ” “ Does citizen science also equal better science ? ” “ Autonomy vs. Community - what’s your practices, values and why ” “ What are the aims, goals & objectives of the movement. ” Other Questions
  24. 24. * We should try to answer all these questions and comments together, globally and in EU- context. * Always present the code of Ethics. It’s always relevant * Include the experts * Should we develop a diybio-license? What is good systems & guidelines? What happens in the lab… * Be Humble, you are dealing with nature and people and everybody's future Summary
