LIFE SCIENCES COMMUNICATION, EDUCATION & CONSULTANCY
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.

Project high lights
Horizon 2020 - EpiPredict
Januari '14 - now
Biotecture is responsible for the outreach and dissemination within the interdisciplinary EpiPredict consortium for epigenetic research into resistance to endocrine (hormonal) therapy in breast cancer.
We installed an in-house experimental place for kids and adults for the Biodesign exhibition. Visitors were able to grow their own cellulosic biomaterial. 20,000 people visited this exhibition on the cross-pollination of nature, science and creativity.
For three years in a row, we had the honor of teaching our workshop on synthetic biology for the brightest primary school kids in the Netherlands that participated in the annual School Competition by the Cognitief Talent Foundation.
