To mark the launch of the Future BRH, a two day event was held at the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology on 19 and 20 June.
The event was attended by over 150 leading academics and business leaders, plus regional and national policymakers to help map out a shared pathway to a bio-based economy. Those attending represented partner universities and organisations, as well as global brands such as Shell, GSK, Unilever and BP.
Delegates learned how the new hub will draw on national expertise to focus on innovations in pharmaceuticals, value-added chemicals, engineering materials and biofuels. The event brought together industry colleagues and Future BRH partners to discuss mechanisms for working with the Future BRH, and engagement with our Grand Challenge Areas.
