Governance & Policy Network

Mission and Vision

The Network positions iGEM alumni to participate in the field’s larger context, such as policy discussions and public consultations, and encourages them to develop governance solutions. They also aim to help members of our community understand and navigate local regulations and governance that apply to their synthetic biology work.
