The second SynBio World Café , ‘What stops the SynBio revolution in Germany?’ organised by the German Association for Synthetic Biology (GASB) with support of the Hightech-Forum, will take place on the 9th of July, 2020 10am – 6pm. Due to the current global health restrictions it will take place as a virtual event. But the team organising are confident there will be a comparable level of engagement and activity as the previous SynBio World Café did.
Globally, as well as in Germany, ground-breaking synthetic biology research is performed that is pushing for implementation into products. Even though the German Government announced a new bioeconomy strategy – a response the lack of commercialization of SynBio research compared to other countries, there are still questions. Most pressingly, what stops the SynBio Revolution in Germany? And how can we change the status quo towards our benefit?
The answer can be found in SynBio startups and this year’s SynBio World Café focuses the startup activities by asking the question: What stops the SynBio revolution in Germany?
Discussing hurdles, obstacles, and bottlenecks that come with the founding of a new synbio company as well as steering an existing one towards success, this event brings together stakeholders from academia, industry, and legislation to discuss ideas and foster new relationships and discussions. As it’s a digital format, the organisers want to ensure active discussion and therefore have limited number of participants.
You don’t need to be a SynBio expert as this event offers an introduction, and if you are already an expert, you will learn more about the countless transition possibilities.
Register today here. The application is easy and requires only a few minutes and includes some questions that the organisers would like to use as a kick off for discussions.
