How to translate research into practice? Key bottlenecks addressed at thematic workshop

June 29, 2017

Prof. Fraser and Dr Nogueira from DISCO partner RHUL participated in a high value chemicals workshop held in York on June 27, 2017.

The event was organized by the High Value Chemicals from Plants Network (HVCfPN) and aimed at addressing scale-up and biorefining. This area is directly aligned to DISCO activities and future directions of the consortium. The workshop participants discussed about bio-based innovations and strategies for promoting bioeconomy in the UK and beyond.

HVCfP is one of 13 collaborative Networks in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (NIBB) funded by the British Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). These multidisciplinary networks will drive new ideas to harness the potential of biological resources for producing and processing materials, biopharmaceuticals, chemicals and energy.
