UK Synthetic Biology start-up survey 2017
The UK’s first survey of the Synthetic Biology industry following a year of significant progress.
SynbiCITE’s UK Synthetic Biology start-up survey 2017 will assess the current and potential size of the Synthetic Biology industry, looking closely at growth trends, company scale, the value of the sector, key stakeholders and the commercial impact it could have. The challenges facing the industry, such as funding and IP protection, regulatory issues and ethics will also be evaluated. The completed report will be available this summer.
SynbiCITE has created a globally renowned national resource of interacting partners from academia, industry and business across the UK to accelerate the commercialisation of world-class science and emerging technologies encompassed by synthetic biology into new products, tools, processes and services.
