The economic and social life of synthetic biology
at The Royal Society and The Royal Academy of Engineering

On 13-14 April 2011, the Royal Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering are jointly hosting a two day symposium to discuss the economic and social life of synthetic biology.  For the first time, the expertise and networks of the science and engineering academies from the UK, China and US will be brought together, producing a unique opportunity for researchers, policy makers and firms interested in this emerging field.

The first in a series of three symposia, each held in a different country (UK, China and US), this symposium will explore the potential for synthetic biology research to lead to novel tools and technology, as well as the challenges provoked by these innovations.
