BIO-DESIGN for the REAL WORLD is an interdisciplinary and collaborative research project to define, build, and field-test prototypes that require the integration of wetware, hardware, and software to address real world water problems.

The project is a partnership between (Art)ScienceBLR with design students from the Srishti School of Art, Design & Technology, (Bangalore, India) the Lifepatch citizen initiative in art, science and technology (Yogyakarta, Indonesia]), and students at the School of Life Sciences at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland, and housed in Hackuarium). We collaborate closely with National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS, Bangalore India), and Universitas Gadjah Mada (Yogyakarta, Indonesia).

We use open processCC BY-SA 3.0 and a do-it-yourself (DIY) and do-it-with-others DIWO) approach. Our day-to-day activities are chronicled on our blog. Our documentation can be found on the project wiki (and old wiki) and we share our code and designs on github. Be sure to check out our videos and links.

Shout out to Hackteria where BioDesign started as an idea in the hackterialab 2011 in Romainmôtier in Switzerland. Check out Hackteria’s wiki page for DIYBIO projects and designs .

The project was launched with support by the CoDEV SEED grant from EPFL (2.2013-12.2014).
