This year GASB, SPRIND and the Centre for Synthetic Biology are proud to host the 4th annual SynBio World Cafe. Bridging the gap between academic research, industrial infrastructure and venture capital, the SBWC brings together carefully selected  individuals from all over the Synthetic Biology landscape. The participants will discuss the current state and the necessary next steps to harness the field’s untapped potential. 


SPRIND is the Federal Agency for Leap Innovations that aims is to discover and further develop research ideas that have the potential to disrupt individual technologies or entire industries.


The German Association for Synthetic Biology is the mediator between academia, industry, elected officials, and the general public in all things SynBio

Centre for Synthetic Biology

Located at and intertwined into the Technical University of Darmstadt, the Centre for Synthetic Biology fosters research and academic progress relatd to SynBio


Capital and Finance

Acquiring the necessary capital to get the ball rolling and also to keep it rolling is a constant issue for Start-Ups and Entrepreneurs. How can we make the process more accessible and understandable for first time founders


Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are already a part of almost every workflow, in every project, in every industry. In our discussions we aim to figure out what is hype and what to prepare for.


One of our most pressing and important topics of todays economy is Sustainability. At the SBWC we will are looking for the current state and also the next steps we need to take to move to a sustainable and ideally circular economy.


Many scientist do not know about the current regulations regarding IP and getting your product to market. How can this situation be improved?


"A good product sell itself!"...but does it really? Science Communication is not only about making science more understandable , it is also vital for your potential investor and future costumer to understand your product.

The prospects of Synthetic Biology are plentiful. How do we harnest its potential?

Internationally, synthetic biology has already clearly established itself as a key technology of the future and a valuable industry, and in our country it is becoming increasingly clear that collaboration across all sectors is crucial to drive growth and innovation. To this end, the German Society of Synthetic Biology (GASB) is once again hosting its annual SynBio World Cafe. This series of events aims to bridge the gap between the academic and industrial synbio worlds, in addition to connecting them with legislative stakeholders. This year’s event will again focus on the various challenges and obstacles faced by synbio startups in Germany. The event will bring together a diverse group of participants, including academic researchers, entrepreneurs, industry representatives, venture capitalists and legislators to discuss topics such as funding, entrepreneurship, policy, patents and regulations.

As the synthetic biology industry continues to evolve, the SynBio World Café is an important platform to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the field. As only a limited number of seats are available, interested parties are encouraged to apply and share how they can contribute to the discussions.
