Meetups/August NCTUFormosa


2014 International iGEM Conference at NCTU

Team NCTU Formosa is planning a Chinese and Taiwanese team meet up from August 3 to August 7 at NCTU! It will be a warm-up before the Giant Jamboree, and teams will be able to meet each other, and swap ideas. Teams will be introducing their projects to each other with the goal of improving their projects. In addition to project presentations, there will be social events such as talent show or music concert, and they may even journey to Taipei at the end.
