How Digital Biology Will Transform the World as We Know It

Biotech, Health, life,

Meetups are independent community gatherings organized by Techfestival co-creators. Open to curious minds of all ages and backgrounds. Make sure to RSVP to secure your spot!

What if your body could notify your doctor when something was wrong, even before you felt any different? What if your DNA became the operating system for new lines of code? What if we could tell you exactly what to eat and how to workout for your body? What if plants could tell you they were thirsty and be watered with no human intervention?

Join entrepreneurs and faculty from SingularityU Denmark on Thursday, Sept. 7 and hear what some of the leading biotech startups in Denmark are working on.

SingularityU Denmark’s Digital Biology faculty Hannes Sjöbald will come from Sweden to run through what you need to know when it comes to the future of this industry. Then we’ll discuss exciting initiatives happening on the ground in Denmark before touching upon how you can get involved!
