Horizon scanning workshops (Bioethics futures)

Our Bioethics futures workshops are our horizon scanning workshops. We invite people and organisations from a range of sectors and specialisms to discuss advances in research in relation to broad societal challenges, and the ethical questions they might raise. The outcomes feed into our programme planning and are usually shared in the form of a blog post.
