iGEM Europe

Transnatural Festival

Call for Entries

For the most intriguing presentation that fits
within the conference program
Sponsored by Transnatural, Amsterdam

Transnatural offers the opportunity to an European iGEM team to present at the Transnatural Conference on 17-18 September in Science Centre NEMO (Amsterdam, NL). This will be an unique chance to give a first run of your iGEM presentation for an interesting mix of e.g., artists, designers, people from academia and industry. A perfect rehearsal just before the European Jamboree!

This year’s theme of conference is Autonomy and covers the following topics: 1. Autonomous creatures and systems. 2. The new Power: New ways energy/food harvesting. 3. Smart as Matter: New (intelligent) innovative materials & alternative, smart use of old materials.

The festival illustrates future scenarios, innovation and sustainability within a strong interdisciplinary program with line-up of the top class creators, thinkers and business. A mix of examples out of R&D labs from leading companies, art, design and research are exhibited in- and outdoors to a broad audience during one month. The focus of this festival is on emerging technologies that play by the rules of nature.
