This debate will take place the Friday of the Jamboree, October 5th. The topic of this debate will be about the release of research details on the creation of highly transmissible H5N1 (bird flu) in the lab.

Our team had extra help from an embedded humanist, named Daan Schuurbiers, who followed the research as a midstream modulation project. Including Daan to the project, the team became also aware of the social sciences of the research. ‘’Midstream modulation asks how research is to be carried out, which is the main business of research, rather than whether a research project should be carried out, which is an upstream policy question. It is a means to evaluate and adjust research decisions in light of societal factors while the research process is taking place.’’ There are 3 different stages in the governance of science and technology, upstream, downstream and midstream modulation, see figure on the right. So by thinking about midstream modulation, this project is connected with the scientific research as well as to the social issues. In this documentary you will see how science will meet the human interest in many ways.

Ethics

We did two different project on the field of ethics

  • Working together with humanist Daan Schuurbiers
  • Rathenau Debate 'Meeting of Young Minds'

We are working together with Daan Schuurbiers, the director of a consultancy for responsible innovation. Daan's main contribution was to make the team aware of the social sciences of the research. Which is so important for our potential tuberculosis diagnosing method.

We also proposed a debate for the Meeting of Young Minds, organized by the Rathenau institute, on the first day of the Jamboree. We held a debate about the H5N1 research and whether scientific research may be censored. With this debate we won the Meeting of Young Minds Award!
