European SynBio Hackaton

Powered by SYNBEE Consortium, organized by the Biocatalyst Foundation

THE CONCEPT:

Bringing together synbio enthusiasts from across the European continent to brainstorm and design bold applications of synthetic biology’s expanding capabilities. 

Within a two-day online programme, the teams will work on their concepts, get feedback from mentors, and pitch to a jury consisting of academia, industry, and investors. The goal is to catalyze entrepreneurial thinking on a grand scale, in a vibrant, informal atmosphere, ensuring inclusivity and equality: the missing puzzle piece for the European biotech scene.
