Lotte Asveld Group

Lotte Asveld studies the societal aspects of biotechnological innovations. Her main research interests concern responsible innovation in the field of biotechnology and synthetic biology: how can the moral, technical and institutional uncertainties around promising new technologies be addressed societally? How can societal concerns and values be integrated into biotechnological innovation trajectories? What are the responsibilities of various actors involved in these trajectories? In her teaching, Lotte discusses these questions with LST students.

Previously Lotte worked as a postdoc researcher in the department of Philosophy at TUD and as a researcher at the Rathenau Institute for technology assessment, focusing on the bioeconomy, and as a freelance researcher in China.
