Careers in Cellular Agriculture Event

We are excited to invite you to the "Careers in Cellular Agriculture Event," an independent event designed for students, academics, and young professionals intrigued by the potential of cellular agriculture and its career opportunities.

This event is a superb opportunity to kick-start your career in a field set to revolutionize our concepts of food and agriculture. Regardless of your field of study, the Careers in Cellular Agriculture Event will equip you with valuable insights into this pioneering industry that needs all hands on deck to succeed in mitigating the risks of conventional animal agriculture, such as animal suffering, climate change, the risks of zoonotic diseases and antibiotic resistance.

This event is entirely free for all, but please note that the participation does not grant you access to the 2nd International Cellular Agriculture Conference.

Spaces are limited, so please sign up early to avoid disappointment.
