Last week 270 scientists gathered in the beautiful Bruges for the 3rd edition of the Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology conference. With 36 oral presentations, 47 posters to discuss and 13 sponsor booths, the 2-day meeting was full of science, technology and interaction. The conference dinner at the brewery the ‘Halve Maan’, including a beer tapping class and a guided tour in the brewery hall, was a very nice ending of the first conference day.
As the conference was appreciated well by a lot of speakers and attendees - ‘Wonderful congress. Great location. Very interesting program and perfect size to easily interact.’ ‘The conference was great! The talks were top-notch and had a good balance between industry and academia.’- we might start thinking of a fourth edition in 2020.
The VIB conferences team would like to thank the Organizing Committee, the great speakers, the companies who supported this conference and of course, the enthusiastic audience.
