Webinar: €5,000 Prize For Novel Biocomputing Ideas
Date: 24 September 2019, 11:00 CEST
Are you a researcher in the biocomputing field? Get recognised for your work and learn more about the €5,000 Bio4Comp Open Innovation Award in our webinar on 24 Sept. 2019, 11:00-12:15 CEST.
The event is being organised under the umbrella of the Future Tech Week by Bio4Comp, the European Commission-funded project that seeks to advance the nascent field of biocomputing - the realisation of which will produce computers that are faster and vastly consume less energy or resources!
During the webinar, we will unveil the 2nd Call for Applications, the new topic and the mechanics of the awarding where the new winning idea will win €5,000.
The webinar will also announce the winner of the first round who will present their winning idea which addressed “Encoding and decoding of information from cytoskeletal filaments for parallel computing”
