Programme BioRange Project Meeting

This has been a closed meeting only accessible for people working in a NBIC Partner organisation. Goal of this meeting was to bring together the researchers related to the NBIC programmes, to exchange information between projects, open discussion and to get to know each other.

All participants were asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Because of IP regulations the files of the presentations will not be available online.

Programme, March 29
