Team meetups offer an opportunity for iGEM teams to bounce ideas off each other, collaborate, and meet other iGEM-ers!

Is your team getting together with other teams nearby?

Are you holding an event to promote your iGEM team?

Let us know about it here.

From Saturday to Sunday, teams will get to learn about each other's projects, and also network to develop human practice ideas, or possibly even bundle projects together. On Monday, the group is invited to a meeting of the LMU's Center of Advanced Studies about Synthetic Biology with other international speakers, and some teams may even be able to introduce their projects to the audience!

Past Meet-ups

UK team meetup

UK Team

At the inaugural YSB conference, young synthetic biologists from 14 college UK iGEM teams, members of UK iGEM High School and Entrepreneurial teams came together to share their projects and initiate collaborations. This 2 day event featured team presentation, Q & A sessions, poster presentations, and break out sessions focusing on different skills you need in iGEM e.g human practices. There was also a social evening for all the teams to get to know each other.
