We want to sincerely thank all our partners and sponsors who helped us realising GLP.exe. Without their financial support, material supplies and provision of laboratory space, the practical implementation of our project and competing in iGEM 2019 would not have been possible.
Collaboration: Experimenta - Das Science Center
Inaugurated in 2009 and expanded in 2019, Experimenta is Germany’s biggest science center. Located in the middle of Heilbronn, Baden-Wuerttemberg, it presents the world of science in a very interactive approach, providing exhibitions, games and events for spectators of every age. A further objective of Experimenta is the promotion of young researchers, offering school tours, holiday courses and individual support of creative projects.
