We are excited to engage with EBRC members and the broader research community on this important roadmapping effort. We welcome workshop participation from academic, industry, and government scientists and engineers, research & development leadership, students and postdocs, and other stakeholders.

During the workshop, participants will:

  • Discuss and brainstorm engineering biology solutions for the following areas:
      a) addressing the climate crisis, including mitigating greenhouse gasses and responding and adapting to the negative impacts of climate change;
      b) addressing environmental challenges, including pollution mitigation and remediation, restoration, and rehabilitation of ecosystems;
      c) promoting sustainability, through the sustainable production of materials and goods and the sustainable use of natural resources.
  • Identify and describe which challenges can be addressed by engineering biology.
  • Discuss and draft how engineering biology could address those challenges, through a framework of technical themes.
