Since the development of the internet, the speed of technological innovation has become exponential. Biohacking and Smart Manufacturing, similar to popular fields like blockchain and machine learning, are opening up tremendous challenges and opportunities.

We are aware of this and we even feel the pain of the implication of such a revolution. We know that we don’t have any other solution but to try to find a process where we could balance the world of logic, critical thinking, discipline, self-reliance, and awareness, with the challenges of the new world; the exponential growth of science and technology.

There are two fully equipped laboratories on Biohacking and Smart Manufacturing, directed by an international team of creative mentors and Visiting Fellows, all of which understand the challenges of their industry.

The goal is to develop a process where students and mentors can work together to tackle serious problems through a deep understanding of the principles of powerful technologies without forgetting about the human and social component.

To solve relevant problems, to go into the market and to survive, is a tremendous undertaking. We are aware of this challenge, which is why The Ark Lab takes an approach that brings together science, mind and soul united create solutions that equilibrate the market requirements with the society necessities.

We don’t want you to build businesses that make money for the sake of making money, we want you to build profitable businesses that reflect your moral beliefs and commitment to build a better society around the world. As such, this is an open process of co-creation that starts with you.


The course will consist of six scheduled projects with the option to experiment with bioimplants towards the end of the course. The first week will begin with procedures meant to teach the basics of sterile techniques and growing microbes.


Smart Manufacturing aka Industry 4.0 describes the new era of the intelligent factory, in which previously separate production processes join together to produce usable data. With this new technology machines can communicate between them, merging by cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT).
