Next LBNet sandpit workshop:  “UK BioChem 10”. Top bio-based chemicals for the UK: Challenges and Opportunities

LBNet held a meeting last July 6th at the Royal Society of Chemistry to initiate the identification of the most promising bio-based chemicals for production in the UK. Our aim is for this list to provide a collaborative focus for industry and academia and speed up innovation in the bio-based chemicals sector in the UK. The workshop findings will form the basis of an in-depth desk-based study to detail opportunities and gaps in this sector.

Apply to attend our free sandpit to develop concepts and teams to take on our Grand Challenge in bio-based chemicals for the UK. Our aim is to bring together complimentary teams from academia and industry, and pump prime the best ideas for proof of concept studies (up to £50,000) to initiate work in this area and prime it for opportunities arising from the Industrial Strategy Grand Challenge.

The sandpit will be held this October 18-19, 2017 in York at The Principal York (Next door to York Station).
