About

The Decentralized Science Conference 2023

DeSci London is a 2-day event focused on showcasing the potential of blockchain technology within science. Over the course of the two days, we will host talks and workshops focused on decentralised science (DeSci) projects aiming to improve everything from publishing infrastructure to longevity, rare diseases, climate tech & SynBio.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

With lofty goals to transform Science through web3 technology, we also want to set a new benchmark for diversity, equity & inclusion. That is why we will be offering travel grants to both the DeSci & Academic communities to ensure women and minority groups are represented in talks and attendance. Apply here.

An International Powerhouse

By leveraging London’s role as a biotech hub with one of the highest concentrations of academic talent in the world, and combining it with the emerging web3 sector, we have an opportunity to kickstart the next scientific revolution!

DeSci London Hackathon

DeSci London Hackathon is a hackathon event taking place on the 12th and 13th of January 2023. This hack is aimed at anyone interested in DeSci.

The event will have two tracks – code and no-code. All submissions will be open source. Teams are encouraged and supported to experiment with web3 tools (e.g. SNARKs, knowledge graphs, NFTs) to solve specific problems in modern science.

Tasks will involve thinking through risks and following the values of Science as a public good, putting science first, and improving the quality of science.

Note: This is an IN PERSON Hackathon in London, U.K.
