Welcome to the Amsterdam Science Park Study Group!
Let's work together to speed up research

What We Do

Amsterdam Science Park Study Group is dedicated to building a community of computational biologists and bioinformaticians. This Study Group promotes skill sharing and collaboration by (1) organizing one-hour interactive workshops, (2) regularly organise co-working sessions for peer-to-peer assistance, (4) act as local hub to set-up Software and Data Carpentry workshops and, last but not least (4) bring researchers together at social events like Hacky Hours hackatons. All are welcome to this study group, regardless of scientific research area, affiliation or training level.

Skill-sharing workshops

One hour lessons to learn and practice coding skills

Hacky Hours (co-Working sessions)

Get help on your coding projects.

Community Building

Meet new people in your field, organization or community. Get better together!.

All are welcome! Regardless of scientific research area, affiliation or programming level (absolute beginner to expert)
