iGEM 2019

On the 4th of November Wageningen became second overall (for the third time after 2014 and 2016).

Plus they won the prize for the best Food and Nutrition project and best Poster. Besides this they were nominated for best Wiki, best Presentation, and best Public Education and Engagement.

There were 353 teams from over the whole world. All in all a great result.

The students and the team did an excellent job, not just technically, but also in terms of societal engagement & human practices. This student challenge nicely reflects the spirit of the WUR and motivated substantially quite a number of other students, as its a great education/training exercise.
