Teesside University is leading on this showcasing event which celebrates the collaborative approaches being undertaken to address the needs of the bioeconomy.
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 achieve national sustainability and carbon reduction targets.
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.
The 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.
Teesside University will also highlight Innovate UK Funding opportunities to tackle different Bioeconomy challenges.
Delegates will also have the opportunity to tour Teesside University’s £22m National Horizons Centre, a major new facility to grow research, knowledge exchange and skills in the bioeconomy.
