IBioIC Annual Conference - Resilience and the Bioeconomy

Support provided by IBioIC

What does this involve?

This 2-day conference takes place in Glasgow on 15 and 16 March 2023. The conference is hosted by IBioIC and brings together key thinkers, industrialists and policy-makers in the bioeconomy to explore resilience as it pertains to companies working within the bioeconomy and how the bioeconomy itself can contribute to resilience in industry and society in general.

The conference opens with a thought-provoking, visionary session featuring:

  • Mark Beaumont BEM - athlete, BBC broadcaster, and Eos Advisory partner
  • Mark Brodziski - Deputy Administrator, Rural Business-Cooperative Service, USDA Rural Development

Other sessions will cover the impact of investment, sustainable materials, and the journey of scaling up a bio-based process. There will also be showcase sessions that focus on innovation among IBioIC members and academic partners, and a new session sponsored and run by Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies which will look at strategic partnerships for growth.

Extensive networking opportunities will give delegates plenty of opportunities to develop personal networks and seek out useful engagements.

Companies also have the opportunity to exhibit at or sponsor the conference, or host their own fringe event. These opportunities are designed to help companies raise their profile and meet new colleagues in the bioeconomy.

Conference attendees are also invited to book a place at the conference dinner on the evening of 15 March. The dinner will take place at Platform at the Arches. This is a unique opportunity to network in a relaxed and informal setting.
