iGEM Paris Bettencourt

Since 2007, a CRI team has proudly participated in the international Genetically Engineered Machines (iGEM) competition. The iGEM competition began at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2004. Every year, students from around the world spend a summer building living systems of their own design.

In the fall, teams gather in Boston, USA, to present their projects to each other and to the panel of iGEM judges. In 2013, over 200 teams from the best global univeristies competed in project categories like Food & Energy, Manufacturing, Environment, Health & Medecine, and more.

Our team is consistently excellent, and our students have collected many awards through the years. In 2013, we were honored with the Grand Prize at the World Championship Jamboree! Our success is owed to the generous and continued support of the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation.

The iGEM competition is a unique educational opportunity. It is a chance for young students of any background, many without prior lab experience, to build their own project and present it on a global stage. If you are a biologist, physicist, artist, designer, pharmacist or engineer from anywhere in Paris interested in joining our iGEM team, the most important qualification is a love of hard work, team work, and biology.
