How Can We Unlock the Potential of Industrial Biotechnology in Europe?

Industrial Biotechnology (IB) has been identified as one of the key enabling technologies which can drive European competitiveness in the coming decades and help develop a more sustainable and resource-efficient Europe. However, major hurdles hamper the full exploitation of IB. These include access to feedstock and financing, low public awareness of the benefits of IB products, a lack of incentives and various technological constraints.

The FP7 funded BIO-TIC project will hold a series of workshops in late 2014 to examine what could be done to overcome the hurdles to IB in Europe and to develop concrete, actionable solutions to unlock the potential of this key transformative technology. The solutions developed in these workshops will be used in the development of an integrated roadmap for IB in Europe, which will be completed and submitted to the European Commission in summer 2015.

Input from market, policy and technological experts is crucial to help us develop recommendations which best address the needs of industry. If you have expertise in any of the product categories below, or work in an industrial sector where these IB products could be used, but is not currently, we are keen to hear your views!
