Final Call for Open Cell’s Open Residency Program

This is our final call out for our Open Residencies Program commencing February 2020 (or later based on your circumstances) and running up to six months. This offers individuals or groups at the earliest stages of business a studio/office space with full access to the suite of OpenCell lab/workshop facilities and the support of the community.

Our program is a great way to start a venture, expand an idea or create a charitable programme. We provide you with the opportunity to take your great seed of an idea and provide you with the infrastructure to test it. OpenCell takes no equity, IP or any other claim to your business. 

We are a community and we do expect the open resident (or residents) to contribute at least 5 days per month to community activities. This can be in different forms but it will require meaningful engagement. Examples could include (but are not limited to) outreach events, workshops, training, sourcing equipment, maintenance of tools etc. 

This year we are in particular looking for ideas that tackle challenges around hardware and/or software for biotechnology and projects that make advantage of synthetic biology. But we are open minded and would like to hear diverse ideas!

To apply email us before 1st January 2020 with subject line: [Open Residency]
