Michael Fallon MP and Minister of State for Business and Enterprise at BIS will open this event which will attract business leaders, technology providers, investors, leading academics and policy makers from the UK and across the EU with the aim to:

  • Showcase UK success in Industrial Biotechnology and Bio-based Products
  • Inspire new manufacturers to explore IB potential
  • Build new collaborations, within the UK and beyond
  • Demonstrate impact of current Government support and commitment for the future
  • Set out IBLF strategy to 2015 and beyond

Key speakers will describe how the UK has achieved success in IB, highlighting exemplar projects, processes and products, and expand upon the UK strategy for IB to 2015 and beyond.

A panel discussion will also provide delegates with the opportunity to hear from senior industrialists and stakeholders.

An exhibition will provide further information on funding, partnering, skills, facilities and capabilities.

1-to-1 Partnering is available throughout the 2 day event

We are pleased to announce that this showcase event will also host the “BIOCHEM Accelerator Forum” which will run in parallel to the main event.

BIOCHEM is a Europe-wide programme funded by the European Commission (DG Enterprise and Industry) to support companies, particularly SMEs and start ups, in entering the rapidly emerging market for bio-based products.

If you are a researcher, entrepreneur or SME keen to become part of the growing bio-economy by changing to bio-based products and processes, then this event is for you. For full info about the BIOCHEM Accelerator Forum, contact
