BioHackathon Europe is an annual event that brings together life scientists from around the world. It is organised by ELIXIR Europe, and offers an intense week of hacking, with over 160 participants working on diverse and exciting projects. The goal is to create code that addresses challenges in bioinformatics research.
This year we are holding the BioHackathon at Campus Belloch near Barcelona (see the Venue page), with remote access available if you cannot attend in person.
Spaces are limited for face-to-face participation and the registration is based on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration for the 2024 BioHackathon will open in May.
BioHackathon activities are driven by practical sessions where people gather, discuss, and implement ideas during intensive coding sessions. The topics will be aligned to challenges proposed by ELIXIR Platforms, Communities and Focus Groups.
People from diverse companies are encouraged to participate and submit project proposals. If you have any questions, for example regarding the scope of the event, contact the ELIXIR Industry and Innovation Officer Despoina Sousoni (firstname.lastname@example.org).
“It was an amazing experience…Two teams embraced our challenge to demonstrate the validity of edge computing. We reached our goal of connecting with the bioinformatics community and creating awareness for a new technology. No doubt we will participate in the future.”
