The Bio-based and Biodegradable Industries Association (BBIA) and BioVale are organising a workshop bringing together key policy makers, investors, industries, start-ups and research institutes from the industrial biotechnology sector. Supported by BIS, the KTN, IBioiC, and CPI, the workshop aims to identify policy requirements and recommendations to feed into the UK bioeconomy strategy. It will provide insights into the bioeconomy landscape, showcase innovative UK biotech companies, and discuss opportunities and barriers to the development of this sector.
