VU spin-off Photosynthetic has been selected as a finalist in the 9th edition of the Hello Tomorrow Global Challenge out of more than 4,000 international participants. This selection not only highlights Photosynthetic’s pioneering work in micro-3D printing technology, but also marks a historic moment as the first finalist from VU Amsterdam and one of the few Dutch representatives ever to reach this stage in the competition.
Photosynthetic is an innovative academic spin-off of the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) supported by the Demonstrator Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and specializes in advanced micro-3D-manufacturing technology.
