Events and Meetups

On this page you will find: Submitting an Event , Events Calendar, and Events list.

Events are happening around the world! This page is a summary of upcoming events for iGEM 2021 teams, including team meetups, training webinars, and Ambassador activities. The list of competition deadlines can be found on the Competition Calendar.

At team meetups, teams share ideas, help each other, and spend time with their fellow iGEMers. Due to the current global situation, we do not recommend teams host in-person meetups in the coming months. Instead, consider switching to an online virtual meetup!
