Bioeconomy & Policy

Georgia Lagoudas
Former White House Office of Science and Technology Policy

The ascendancy of the bioeconomy is intrinsically linked to the endorsement and guidance of policymakers and regulatory bodies. The regulatory milieu for synthetic biology remains in flux, encapsulating many sectors such as alimentary production, energy, material synthesis, and pharmaceuticals derived from living entities. Furthermore, bioeconomy-oriented policies are pivotal in stewarding natural ecosystems, conserving biodiversity, and ensuring biosecurity. In an epoch characterized by climatic perturbations, dwindling resources, and burgeoning global health threats, the formulation of cogent, resilient, and informed policy and biosecurity frameworks becomes indispensable for the realization of sustainable economic paradigms.
