Hogeweg Hesper BIO-IT Scholarship

Hogeweg Hesper BIO-IT Scholarship Launched
Honoring the Pioneers of Bioinformatics

Exactly 54 years ago, two visionary scientists coined the term bioinformatics. Despite their monumental contribution, their names have faded from memory. At Biotecnika, we believe in honouring these pioneers while paving the way for the next generation of BIO-IT professionals. We proudly present the Hogeweg Hesper Scholarship, a prestigious program designed to handpick and nurture 16 talented individuals, equipping them with cutting-edge skills and positioning them for success in the BIO-IT industry.
