Life Science Governance

Logo Forschungsplattform Life Science Governance

The research platform Life Science Governance focused on a special area of governance, i.e. the analysis of expectations and hopes connected with the fields of Biotechnology, Biomedicine, Molecular Biology, and Genome Research and the effects on economy and society.

The scope of research was extended to include Nanotechnology and Biology, but also focused on the socialtheoretical and philosophical basis of "Biological Governance". Together with the Faculty of Life Sciences and the Centre for Molecular Biology, Life Science Governance was operated as a research platform for all faculties.

The research platform expired on 28th February 2015.
