Abstract submission is now open for the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre’s 2018 conference.

The Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC) is one of eight Innovation Centres across a range of key sectors funded by the Scottish Funding Council with support from Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise. The common aim of Scotland’s Innovation Centres is to help businesses large and small increase the pace of innovation and in turn help both the Scottish economy and people to flourish and prosper.

IBioIC’s Annual Conference brings together a unique mix of academia, industry and supporting organisations under one roof, to hear about and explore the potential opportunities for IB in Scotland as well as the global landscape of the industry. The last edition attracted over 400 bio-based professionals, academics and students from across the UK and Europe in 2017, and they intend to make the next event even bigger.
