Sign up for BioHackathon today!


Biotechnology brings together knowledge from many fields of science and confronts many current challenges. The Biohackathon focuses on participants developing solutions to industry-related problems. 

Teams of 4-5 people will have two days to create, develop and present solutions at the intersection of biology and technology. The event is designed to encourage students to make new scientific contacts and expand their knowledge of current challenges in biotechnology. Completing the BioHackathon tasks will require participants to synergize different disciplines, work effectively in teams and study existing solutions.

The results of the teams’ work will be presented to the public on the final day. In addition, participants can attend soft skills workshops and lectures related to the life-science sector. Active participation of the scientific advisory board guarantees the participants reliable feedback, development of the idea, and possibly even implementation of the created solution.
