The shortlisted finalists for the 2017 BBSRC Innovator of the Year competition have been announced. Twelve finalists will compete to be named Innovator of the Year 2017 at East Wintergarden in London on 24 May 2017.


The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) announced a substantial £319 million investment provided by the government to ensure the UK’s bioscience research base remains internationally competitive and at the forefront of meeting global challenges in feeding a growing population, replacing fossil fuels and healthy ageing. “Through our modern Industrial Strategy, we will use all the tools at our disposal to stimulate growth in every part of the country, ensuring that prosperity is more evenly spread,” said Business and Energy Secretary Greg Clark.


Innovations that improve the health of farmed animals and raise agricultural productivity will be brought to market with the support of a £10 million investment. The investment in the new company Roslin Technologies will develop business opportunities arising from the University of Edinburgh’s world-leading animal science research.
