About Event

A meetup dedicated to decentralized science (DeSci) and its tooling in all forms.

The "second wave" of the DeSci movement in the recent years truly brought some tangible improvements in rapid research funding, availability of cloud computing tools, reproducibility, open data access and other community based efforts to eventually help human and planetary health. For a comprehensive overview of the scene, take a look at this article.

Our aim is to provide a relaxed, network focused event to kickstart a more interactive decentralized science community in the New Nordics by showcasing existing success stories and bringing together organizations and people dedicated to fix and accelerate translational science.

The programme brings together DAOs, tooling and platform providers and university spinoff ecosystem players.
