The congress this afternoon has been really interesting. I've definitely learnt something from the other speakers that were in my session and the panel debate was really interesting.

The work that Global Engage have put into this conference is fantastic. We are seeing that we have access to a lot of leader groups. It was very engaging, we'e seen a lot of good people, there were plenty of questions, and we can see that we're really targeting the right audience for this new product.
I've enjoyed the Synthetic Biology Congress very much because here there is a mix of academics, industry, national institutes like us, as well as people from different funding bodies. So the interaction has been very fruitful for us, I'm taking back a lot of contacts with whom I will be in touch.
