In recent years the combined expertise and innovation of UK biologists and engineers has catapulted the UK to the position of being amongst the international leaders in the field of synthetic biology/engineering biology. The opportunity today is to drive growth in the UK bioeconomy, potentially worth trillions of pounds globally, by extending knowledge and understanding of the many industries that can benefit from the field.

They will deliver fresh insights on the future of engineering biology, its relevance to the UK bioeconomy, and the impact our leading businesses are making on the future of health, agriculture, manufacturing, biofuels, water purification and pharmaceutical & medical technologies.

This is an important event. Some of the most influential thought leaders in the field will converge to address fundamental issues affecting businesses in the field today, as well as strategies for investment and growth. This information exchange is an opportunity not to miss.
