In our next Space-Café, we’ll discuss the amazing space collaboration between Aleph Farms (Israel) and 3D Bioprinting Solutions (Russia)

We are proud to invite you to the 9th Space-Café event, in which we’ll host Didier Toubia, CEO of Aleph Farms, and Grigoriy Shalunov from 3D Bioprinting Solutions to talk about the opportunities that lie in cultivate meat in space.

In September 2019 both of the companies made history together when they produced the first cultivated meat in space. Following that, Aleph Farms launched the ‘Aleph Zero’ program to accelerate extraterrestrial food production, which has been the main barrier for long-term space missions. ‘Aleph Zero’ represents the mathematical symbol of the smallest infinite number, and how Aleph Farms brings space infinity closer by supporting deep-space exploration and colonization of new planets. The term also represents the company’s vision for producing meat with near-zero natural resources.

3D Bioprinting Solutions is a Laboratory for Biotechnological Research founded by INVITRO, the largest private medical company in Russia. The laboratory develops and produces bioprinters and materials for 3D bioprinting, and also develops innovative technologies in the field of biofabrication.
