25.07.2020 iGEM India Biosummit 2020

Janina was the Chairperson in the Commitee 'Prevention of Biowarfare' in this year's iGEM India Biosummit. At the center of discussion where the topics Biosafety and Biosecurity with many questions focussing on Covid-19. Proposals were developed on how the education and sensitisation of research scientists could be improved internationally and at university level regarding these topics. Furthermore, suggestions were elaborated on how institutions could be established to standardize and improve risk assessment and risk minimization.

UN Biodiversity Conference 2018

Janina Lüders attended the UN Biodiversity Conference (COP14) in Egypt in 2018 as an After iGEM delegate, taking part in policy making with global influence. Together with Ana Sifuentes (iGEM Headquarter, USA), Justin Vigar (Canada), Aiswarya Prasad (India) and Nina Jerala (Slovenia) she was asked to speak at the side event “LMOs, Synbio and DSI: Experiences from farmers and young scientists” (LMO= Living modified organisms, DSI: Digital Sequence Information).

UN Biodiversity Conference 2018

UN Biodiversity Conference 2018

From left to right: Justin Vigar, Ana Sifuentes, Aiswarya Prasad, Janina Lüders, and Nina Jerala

Janina engaged with global policy makers, stakeholders, the scientific community, several NGOs and others to engage in the process of achieving the Aichi biodiversity targets, to develop the post-2020 biodiversity framework and to discuss the application and implementation of several frameworks in the scientific world, such as Nagoya and Cartagena protocol. She met with the German delegation to the Conference and discussed the impact on the national scientific community with them.

This great learning experience that truly was a life changing event highlighted the importance of human practices as well as networking and collaboration of all stakeholders in international policy and diplomacy. Janina is very grateful for this experience and opportunity to be one of the voices of young scientists at this event with great impact on global policy.
