The University of Copenhagen has recently launched a new research
program in Synthetic Biology. In cooperation with the University of
California at Berkeley, we now bring together leading scientists in
the emerging field of Synthetic Biology at an international workshop
in Copenhagen.

Synthetic Biology International Workshop - Copenhagen 2010 will
address recent advances in Synthetic Biology and include topics such
as biofuels, biomedicine, bioelectronics and bioagriculture.

The format of the workshop will be inspired by Gordon Conferences with
a program of plenary lectures and amble time for discussion. The
workshop will take place on August 25-27, 2010, Nano-Science Center,
Auditorium 2, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

We offer a grant to an journalist who wish to participate in the
workshop. The grant will cover travel to and from Copenhagen,
accommodation during the workshop and participation in the conference
up to €1000. You can apply by sending an email to Rikke Bøyesen (rb@nano.ku.dk
) where you explain your motivation for attending the workshop and
indicate where your journalistic product will be published.
