Projects in the Biomakespace

Biomakespace provides a community and space for people to work on interdisciplinary projects at the interface of biology and engineering. Please get involved with any projects that interest you and propose your own! 

How to propose a project

  1. Speak to other Biomakespace members and the committee (at meetings, via chat or email).
  2. Complete a Project Proposal Form and relevant Risk Assessment, COSHH, and GM forms.
  3. Email your project application to projects@biomake.space.
  4. The committee and Safety Team will take a look and get back to you with any changes. This should take no more than two weeks.
  5. Once the proposal is finalised, you will electronically sign the proposal form and risk assessment.
  6. The project begins! The Safety Team will advise any training that might be required before you begin work and any restrictions e.g. procedures that are not suitable for lone working. The whole committee will help find collaborators if you need help and guidance, they can also help advertise meetups for your project to the Biomakespace members.
