DIYBio & Open Science
Open Science is one of the main pillars of the EU FP9 research program. It envisions more inclusive and participatory knowledge production and calls upon more interactions between science and the public at large in particular by engaging in “citizen science”.
Citizen science may range from single contributions to obtaining data, up to citizens applying the entire scientific method on their own. The latter, extreme interpretation of citizen science aligns well to the aim of DIYBio to make biotechnology accessible for everyone.
