LIFE SCIENCES COMMUNICATION, EDUCATION & CONSULTANCY



Our mission

We live in an exciting time that is strongly influenced by scientific
and technological advances.
Within the life sciences, organisms with synthetic DNA are revolutionizing industries and increasing understanding of our DNA with our lifestyle will translate to more personalized medical treatments.

These developments do not stay in research labs, but have significant implications for our societies. Therefore, Biotecture values a society where people from different backgrounds and ages can learn and think about these scientific developments.

Our mission is to bridge the gap between bio-sciences and society, and to contribute to a research culture with public involvement.

With our communication & education services, we make science understandable for the general public, increase the interest in science and technology amongst children and assist organizations in their communication of new innovations.
