Leading IB: A UK Showcase

BioMarine is supporting the leading IB initiative.

Leading IB: A UK Showcase is a 2-day event showcasing new UK products and processes made possible through industrial biotechnology (IB).

The aim of the event is to ‘showcase’ UK’s biobased industry and will include product exhibits derived from some form of biomass or enzymatic process: fishing rod made of carrots, sweet wrappers made from woody biomass, cups, pens and bags made from wood – are just a few examples.

Get advice on funding, skills and exporting
Service providers and government representatives will also be on hand to offer support in securing funding, skills development and help with overseas business.
Learn from industry experts

We have secured some excellent speakers for this event from both industry and academia, including keynote presentations from companies for which industrial biotechnology is core to their business and they will explain why and members of the academic community who are genuinely paving the way for industry to quickly utilise IB in their own operations:
