Selected centers will be awarded funds to support WBT events and activities throughout the active year.

At this point only non-US science centers are selected as host venues for the World Biotech Tour. However, we are always glad to hear interest from US sites and would like to note that:

  • Many resources on the WBT (such as "Lab in a Box") activities are available to everyone on the WBT website
  • The WBT will organize internet based activities (i.e. video conferences with biotech scientists) that could serve US audiences as well, and
  • The WBT may consider opening to US institutions in the future

Please check the website and our social media channels (Facebook and Twitter) for updates. If you have any questions please contact
