Engineering Biology: Translation from Academia to Industry
Engineering Biology is an important and fast developing technology. It is “the application of rigorous engineering principles to the design of biological systems, with the objective of contributing to economic activity and sustainable and resource-efficient solutions to the societal challenges faced in food, chemicals, materials, water, energy, health and environmental protection.”
To address the challenges within this field, ideas need to get out of the lab and into industry to scale up. This event will allow academics to share their ideas and requirements for scale up with industrial partners and for SMEs and large companies to highlight previous advancements in the field using collaboration and share the lessons learned from those.
In addition, the UK government recently publishing their vision for engineering biology, which has set out £2B of funding over the next decade.
This event will have representatives from DSIT to discuss how funding will be distributed as well as being part of a Q&A panel at the end of the day.Free for SCI Members
