Synthetic Biology holds the promise to be a driving force for the advancement of the bioeconomy. In the not so distant future, SynBio applications are predicted to be part of our everyday life; from the energy we use, to the food we eat and even the beauty products we apply.
The involved technologies, such as DNA synthesis and gene editing, are advancing at a rapid pace. While academic researchers establish the basis for the transformations to come, startups develop promising applications and established companies look into how they can leverage SynBio in their respective fields. The potential benefits of SynBio are huge – but so are the challenges.
The SynBio World Cafe is being co-organized by CompuGene and GASB to tackle those challenges. We invite top-tier representatives from industry and academia to address the pressing issues to advance the bioeconomy using Synthetic Biology. The aim of the meeting is to develop new networks within the SynBio community and support interested stakeholders in incorporating SynBio into their industries. The discussions will focus on four sectors:
- Healthcare and Biopharma
- Commodities and Materials
- Food and Agriculture
The meeting will take place at the Georg-Christoph-Lichtenberg-Haus in Darmstadt from 11 am to 6 pm.
