Consortia meeting of SMARTPLANTS project took place at Sainsbury laboratories of University of Cambridge. Egils Stalidzans, Agris Pentjuss and Vitalijs Komasilovs were representing Latvian side. The laboratory building is located at one side of Botanic Garden of Cambridge. The garden is lively and green in the sunny day of February 16-th.

The modern laboratory building is far from being traditional or conservative. Open view on laboratories through a glass wall as well as a row of open discussion spaces are some of laboratory features.

During the meeting it was decided to organize a conference on synthetic biology topic in April 2018.
