Virtual ESA 3D BioSystem Workshop

The European Space Agency, ESA has selected ground-preparatory studies for making use of the 3D Biosystem on the International Space Station. ESA will showcase the preliminary results during an online workshop on the 19th of June 2024, starting at 9h30 CEST.
  • Tid og sted
  • Hvornår 19. juni 2024 fra 09:30 til 15:00
  • Hvor Online event

The scientific community in ESA member states is invited to join the workshop virtually and gain insights into the work performed so far by the 6 research teams, some of which will be present in person at ESTEC in the Netherlands.

Following the workshop, ESA will host the second info-session on the ISS 3D Biosystem, for researchers to inform themselves on the capabilities the system will have to help prepare their experiments for the upcoming announcement of opportunity.
