Lucas Evers, Waag
Lucas Evers joined Waag in 2007 and is currently leading Waag’s Open Wet Lab, a laboratory where arts, design, sciences, engineering and the public meet to research biotechnologies and their impact on society and ecology. Lucas is actively involved in several projects that concern the interactions between the arts and sciences, arts and ethics, and the arts in a contemporary makers culture. He trained in fine arts and teaching at Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design and studied politics at the University of Amsterdam. His interests lie in the ways we can learn from the interactions, differences, and similarities between artistic, scientific, and other cultures of research.
CRISPRcon – a program of the non-advocacy, non-profit Keystone Policy Center – creates a unique forum in which a broad selection of diverse voices come together to discuss the societal aspects of CRISPR and other emerging genetic technologies across applications including agriculture, health, and conservation. CRISPRcon 2019 was hosted by Wageningen University and Research on June 20-21 in the Netherlands. This marked the third annual CRISPRcon and the first outside the U.S.
