Challenges and Opportunities for Education About Dual Use Issues in the Life Sciences 10:45–11:15 Break 11:15–12:15 Plenary Chair: Andrzej Górski, Polish Academy of Sciences Keynote Address: “Talking to Scientists About Social Responsibility”—Henk Zandvoort, Delft University of Technology This plenary session will focus on experiences preparing scientists and engineers for social responsibility. Professor Zandvoort’s presentation will incorporate discussion of both the policies and practices of teaching about the ethical aspects of sciences, including examples from the field of synthetic biology. Discussion (~30 minutes) 12:15–13:15 Lunch 13:15–14:30 Plenary Chair: Sergio Pastrana, Cuban Academy of Sciences Introduction of Breakout Session Topics and Tasks for the Afternoon—Alastair Hay, Leeds University The afternoon’s sessions are intended to provide a baseline summary of activities. This will enable participants to identify gaps and needs in anticipation of the discussions on the next day about how the gaps can be filled and needs met. To provide a basis for discussion, speakers will present their research on the current status of dual use education in Europe, Japan, and the United States. Workshop participants may also draw on another background paper by Cheryl Vos on “Available Online Resources.” “Current Status of Dual Use Education in Europe and Japan” (paper by Giulio Mancini, Masamichi Minehata, James Revill, and Nariyoshi Shinomiya)—Presentation by James Revill, University of Bradford “Current Status of Dual Use Education in the United States”—Presentation by William Pinard, American Association for the Advancement of Science Initial discussion, Q&A

Rapporteur: Katie Bowman 16:00–16:30 Break (taken during the session) 17:30 Reception and Networking Session (Staszic Palace) The reception will recognize and honor the special contributions by the late Sir Joseph Rotblat and Professor Maciej Nalecz to the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs. Professors Andrzej Górski and Janusz Komender will briefly discuss the contributions to raising awareness among scientists about issues of social responsibility made by these two outstanding members of Polish Pugwash. The networking session is intended to enable participants to share information in an informal environment about their activities and experiences. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their ongoing work related to biosecurity, dual use, and/or education to continue the discussions from the first afternoon and help prepare for the discussions the following day.
