BioHack Academy #5

Call for participants / participating labs

At the beginning of 2018, the fifth edition of our international BioHack Academy starts.

The BioHack Academy is a 10-week course, two full days a week, in which you learn how to design, build and use your own lab. Subsequently, you will perform a personal project with your own-build equipment. The BioHack Academy is an international programme, in which various labs all over the world participate and cooperate.

The BioHack Academy
The age of personal biotechnology is upon us! Engineers have turned biology in a design discipline and it's now up to us to shape it's applications. After completing the BioHack Academy you can grow your own fuel, food, filaments, farmaceuticals, fragances, fungi and much more funky bio stuff at home. We'll teach you how to join the bio revolution and build your own biofactory using a Fablab, Maker/Hackspace or other shared machine shop.

Interested to follow the BioHack Academy at the Waag in Amsterdam, or would you like to join the growing number of participating labs around the world? Please contact us via

We will keep you updated, so that you will be the first to know when registrations will start later this year. You will also be able to take advantage of the early bird (student) discounts, which were sold out in less than a month last year! Please also state whether you would like to participate from abroad or as participant in Amsterdam.
