This year, iGEM has teamed up with Professor Ariel Lidner from the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI) and colleagues at the University of Geneva to conduct a study that will help us learn more about the impact of participating in iGEM.

See below for more details on how to participate!

The iGEM program champions learning and advancement of Synthetic Biology. iGEM participants are characterized by a love of science, an interest in novel ideas, and the desire to take part in research. This year, the iGEM Foundation in collaboration with researchers from the University of Geneva, is launching a survey to address and qualify the different educational facets of participating in the iGEM competition. It will shed light on how iGEM fosters the learning and improvement of both scientific and non-scientific skills.

By participating in this survey you will help to highlight the unique educational contribution of iGEM. In turn the survey results will serve all of us in gaining support for the iGEM teams in the future, both from institutions, universities and sponsors.

A post-survey will be conducted in October and will be concluded after the wiki freeze.

All information provided will be treated confidentially and anonymously, as specified by the Swiss Data Protection Act, 1992. All data will be shared with the iGEM community.
