",Qualitative,"Successful in interviewing Franco Panizza and Anneliese Dodds (an Italian Senator)l the same was not true with most of the UK MPs or MEPs contacted; Local politicians were more concerned about what happens in their constituency and are more experienced with handling public complaints instead of dealing with policy planning; It was still worthwhile in engaging local politicians in order to start a dialogue with them, to update them on what was happening in the lab/university, and to probe whether they have ever handled any public complaints concerning the energy issue",,"Noticed an issue with a lack of responses from the MPs, with three of them replying that due to strict Parliamentary protocol, they could only reply to people living in their constituency (i.e. those with postcodes of the area where the MP is in charge); Bypassed the issue of how to address a local MP in the letter using the template pre-set by the website",,Drafted letters to various members of parliament promoting awareness of both synthetic biology and renewable energy research,Right boi,correct boi,correct boi 485,Kent,Undergraduate,2015,http://2015.igem.org/Team:Kent,,Integrated Human Practices,Influencing Parliamentary Decision,Consult Experts,"<a href=""http://2015.igem.org/wiki/images/a/a9/Team_Kent_University_of_Kent_POST_note.pdf"">http://2015.igem.org/wiki/images/a/a9/Team_Kent_University_of_Kent_POST_note.pdf</a>",Summaries of public policy synthetic biology issues based on research literature and intended for legislators to use,Policy,Legislators,Promote Awareness of Synthetic Biology,"
