The Amsterdam Biolabs Foundation, located in Amsterdam’s A Lab, is a collaborative biobase to experiment on new ideas at the intersection of Software, Hardware and Biology. It provides space and equipment for entrepreneurs, innovators, academics, researchers, designers, artists and makers to work on innovative biology and biotech projects.
With a strong emphasis on a community driven exchange of knowledge, expertise, experience and inspiration by means of meetups and workshops, while at the same time offering space and tools to work and bring ideas into realization, the Amsterdam Biolabs Foundation forms an important creative hub for the local biosciences-based ecosystem of Amsterdam.

This evening is a great opportunity for Sensemakers to learn about the Biotech possibilities & challenges.

Every 3th Wednesday of the month we have lectures, discussions about IoT-related subjects.
