The message of biORACLE was spread at the poster session of the OIKOS conference in Trondheim this month, with the intention of inspiring others to start up similar projects at their home institutions. The importance of inviting students into a safe learning environment with tools such as waffles, coffee and spamming in different medias was emphasized.
Just like the biORACLE-meetings, it was very popular, and many interested conference participants also helped themselves to a waffle or two while checking out the poster. Some even had plans of starting up similar projects at their home institution. There were also rumors of heated discussions between foreign scientists about waffle consistency later in the evening.
