Biodesign for the Real-World

Prototyping bacteria-based Arsenic detection sensors

BIODESIGN for the REAL WORLD is a transdisciplinary and collaborative research project addressing water quality with partners in Switzerland, (Art)ScienceBLR in India, and Lifepatch in Indonesia.

BIO-DESIGN for the REAL WORLD explores how biology and biotechnology can be designed within social contexts.

As a powerful technological medium after industrial and digital revolutions, implementation and design solutions for biology and biotechnology must reflect a diversity of voices to be meaningful in society, not only to be guided by concerns of a few.

We are interested in

  • Real world problems
  • Horizontal exchange
  • Open and transdisciplinary approach
