During the past year, the Geneva Science and Diplomacy Anticipator (GESDA) has consulted over 1200 scientists globally about which scientific advances in the coming 5, 10 and 25 years could have strong implications on the individual, our societies and the planetary ecosystem. This anticipatory mapping is described in the Science Breakthrough Radar and provides an overview of some of the emerging scientific topics which require significant anticipation and attention from world leaders. However, the pace of science and technology is such that this anticipation needs to be constantly reviewed and updated, and take in consideration the latest developments.
The GESDA Anticipation Workshop on Human Applications of Genetic Engineering will discuss and review the latest advances in the field, with a special focus on the 5, 10 and 25 years breakthrough predictions.The workshop will bring together a limited and carefully selected number of leading experts in the fields covered. It will happen under Chatham House Rules and will take the form of a moderated debate on the themes selected.
