as I spoke to you on GOSH 2017 we are running the next BioHack Academy starting end of January. If you are interested or know some who is interested, please contact met via biohack at waag dot org.
Recap about the academy:
The BioHack Academy is a 10-week international course in which the participants learn how to build their own open source biolab equipment. Along the way different techniques are thought such as 3D design, electronics, programming and of course using your lab equipment and documentation of the process.
This all to empower the participants to do their own research/project. In the past editions, partner labs from the US, Latin America, Asia, Australia and Europe have executed the Academy in parallel to the programme at Waag Society, Amsterdam.
