How can Natural Products research and innovation help industry meet the Scottish Government’s Net Zero by 2045 target and encourage the growth of the bioeconomy?
This is a question the Scottish Natural Products Group hope to explore through a series of events in 2021, in partnership with the Bioeconomy Cluster Builder.
This initial series of events mark the beginning of a longer-term vision to create a natural products community in Scotland and build stronger connections between academia and industry in areas such as synthetic biology, biomass and waste products, leading to aligned research goals and industry targets.
The Scottish Natural Products Group is an interdisciplinary collaboration across Research Pools (SULSA and ScotCHEM) and Innovation Centres (IBioIC and SAIC), which brings together academics and industry to accelerate discovery and work toward sustainability goals.
This survey is to gather input from industry as to what the short-term and long-term challenges are for industry within the topic "Synthetic biology approaches to ‘unnatural’ natural products". This information will help us shape our workshops.
We thank you for your time and hope to see you there.
