Engineering Resilience Workshop

September 11 – 15, 2017  /  Heron Island, Great Barrier Reef, Australia 

Together with Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), Revive & Restore held a four-day conference aimed at identifying synthetic biology solutions to conservation problems caused by environmental change. Experts from all fields of conservation came together to develop ambitious projects designed to alleviate the threat of an invasive species, further climate resilience, confer disease resistance, or develop stakeholder and community engagement.
