Following up on the first DIYBio EU meeting (http://www.diybio.eu/first-diybio-europe-meetup-sprouts-4-promising-diybio-projects/) in Paris last December, this meetup aims to once again gather all Europeans interested in Do-It-Yourself Biology.
During this two-day meeting in the historical Theatrum Anatomicum, we will assess and extend the current state-of-art in citizen science in the field of biotechnology. Every participant is highly encouraged to present their motivation, work and vision.
The meetup is open to everyone who considers him/herself an observer, beginner or even expert in (amateur) biotechnology, bio-arts or design, especially when you're interested in international collaboration.
The preliminary program of the meetup is:
Saturday June 22:
- Peer-to-peer presentations about ongoing projects
- Exchange of best practices / community lab residents exchange
- What we can learn from the FabLab network to strengthen the European community
- DIYBio Code of Ethics revision: Glowing Plant case study
- Improvements in communications
- What ever comes to mind, or suggest a topic via email [masked]
Sunday June 23:
- Hands-on workshop and make projects in the Open Wetlab
- Produce the first joint DIYBio EU publication
Interested in showing, experimenting or telling something yourself? Please send a message to [masked]!
Needless to say, there will be plenty of time to ask questions, interact and brainstorm.
Participation is free of charge.
