Please join us for breakfast and a discussion of the Royal Academy of Engineering’s new policy report: Engineering biology: A priority for growth.

This is the culmination of an 18-month project, which has sought to understand the current barriers that are preventing the UK from fully exploiting the opportunities presented by engineering biology, and suggest potential solutions, considering the balance between market pull and technology push.

Engineering biology is the application of rigorous engineering principles to the design of biological systems, with the objective of contributing to economic activity and sustainable and resource-efficient solutions to the societal challenges faced in food, chemicals, materials, water, energy, health and environmental protection.


This event will bring together stakeholders from across industry, academia and government to hear about the findings and recommendations within the report and build connections.
