A National Bioeconomy Strategy 2030: Delivering the Strategy through Collaboration, 4th December

Date: 4 December 2019
Time: 7.30am – 11.30am
Location: Teesside University, Darlington

You are invited to an event focussing the opportunities and challenges highlighted in A National Bioeconomy Strategy 2030: Delivering the Strategy through Collaboration.

The UK Government’s 2018 Bioeconomy strategy has firmly established the need to use renewable biological resources to replace fossil resources in innovative products, processes and services in order to harness the power of bioscience.

Bioscience and Biotechnology research is seen as a key driver in the circular economy by offering tools to enable progress in different fields, among them biorefining, marine and freshwater technologies, energy and waste conversion, food, feed and textile production, agriculture, health and much more.

This event is being delivered in partnership with Innovate UK and the Research England funded project; THYME: Teesside, Hull and York Mobilising Bioeconomy Knowledge Exchange and will showcase collaborative approaches which are currently being undertaken to address the needs of the Bioeconomy.

We will also highlight Innovate UK Funding opportunities to tackle Bioeconomy challenges

Please join us on 4th December to identify opportunities to build consortia and develop project ideas to respond to these funding opportunities. There will also be an opportunity to tour the National Horizons Centre, the University’s £22m purpose-built biosciences research, education and training facility.
