Scotland & Ireland Bioeconomy Innovation Collaboration: High Value Bio-based Ingredients

October 19, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Build connections between Scotland and Ireland Circular Bioeconomy actors to commercialise high value bio-based products and ingredients

The circular bioeconomy is a USD $7.7 trillion opportunity for business and a key element in the fight against climate change, biodiversity loss and resource scarcity. Globally, the emphasis on this sector as an engine for economic growth is gaining momentum, with the European Bioeconomy Strategy in full swing and more recently the launch of the National Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Initiative in the USA.

This year, Scotland and Ireland are each hosting ‘Bioeconomy Week’ in October to raise awareness of the strategic importance of the role of industrial biotechnology in our future circular bioeconomy.

Lots of work is underway in our business and innovation community and more can be achieved through collaboration. With our closest neighbours, we have identified potential for strategic industry collaborations and shared knowledge to strengthen our competitiveness and value chains.

This event is an opportunity to explore in more detail how we can unlock high value bioeconomy opportunities.

Join this event to:

    • Learn about case studies of industry led innovation to create high value bio-based products
    • Hear about Training & Skills, Services and Facilities available through the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre and Munster Technological University
    • Share insights on what’s needed to scale collaborative activity
    • Engage first-hand about upcoming opportunities for future site visits facilitated through the Irish and Scottish innovation organisations.
