Engineering Biology

Engineering Biology (EngBio) provides us with the opportunity to step away from traditional methods and provide innovative solutions for challenges brought by climate change and the associated impact areas, like food availability and the need for sustainable feedstocks.

EngBio applies engineering principles to biology and enables us to build and manufacture novel biological systems and products. Together with Industrial Biotechnology, the two sectors are the driving force behind achieving UK’s ambitious goal of doubling the BioEconomy by 2030. We are also working closely with the Engineering Biology Leadership Council and UKRI to ensure the UK is a world leader in Engineering Biology.

KTN work across the EngBio innovation pipeline, enabling the translation of engineering biology into commercial outputs. Through our Engbio Landscape Map, we’ll highlight industry contacts, researchers and relevant stakeholders that can help you explore novel biobased solutions.
