#DigNA Portfolio Meeting

#DigNA Portfolio Meeting

We were delighted to attend the first DNA-based digital data storage (#DigNA) portfolio meeting which took place in Munich last week. DISCO is one of 9 #EUeic funded projects from the 2022 #EUeic Pathfinder challenge in DNA based data storage. The portfolio is managed by Programme Manager Isabel Obieta Vilallonga with Carlos Casorrán, Lucia Farina, together with Prof. Martyn Amos

It was a great opportunity to catch up with our collaborators tilibit nanosystems and prgm.dev and to meet  and engage with the other portfolio projects MI-DNA Disc, PEARL-DNA, DIDAX, DNAMIC, DURA-store, HYPERION, NEO and TextaDNA. The meeting included a full day workshop with presentations  from each of the 9 portfolio projects, thank you to Abeer Eshra for the excellent presentation on our DISCO project.  It also included a poster session and break out sessions for the different Working Groups within the #DigNA portfolio.

The following day included a fascinating tour of Technical University of Munich; thank you to our hosts who kindly took the time to show us around. We look forward to collaborating with #DigNA colleagues on the next steps which will include a Portfolio Strategic  Plan.
