BBSRC is inviting comment on the future strategy for UK biotechnology and biological sciences. An online questionnaire seeks input to shape our emerging thinking.

BBSRC has received an additional £16.6 million from the government’s flagship Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) to develop new agricultural technologies and industrial bioprocesses to underpin a more successful bioeconomy. Universities and Science Minister Jo Johnson said: This significant investment will support pioneering bioscience research and development projects that will reduce our reliance on carbon, boost the productivity of our nation’s crops and develop new world-leading agricultural technologies.”
