NCIMB sponsorship at IBioIC’s 5th annual conference

NCIMB is delighted to be one of the sponsors of the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre’s 5th annual conference. This year’s event, titled ‘Industrial Biotechnology for a Sustainable Future’, will be held at the Technology Innovation Centre, in Glasgow, 30 – 31 January 2019.

The IBioIC annual conference brings together academia, bio-based professionals and supporting organisations under one roof, to learn more about and explore the potential opportunities for industrial biotechnology in Scotland, as well as the global landscape of the industry.

The event is building a reputation as one of the most important UK based industrial biotechnology meetings in the calendar, and attracts key players and influencers from the UK and further afield.

Attendees can hear from leading experts, participate in partnering meetings, visit the exhibition and poster area, and of course, network with contacts old and new.

NCIMB manages the National Collection of Industrial, Food and Marine Bacteria – the biggest reference collection of industrially and environmentally valuable microorganisms in the UK.  The company is also an International Depository Authority (IDA) for bacteria, fungi, bacteriophages, plasmids and seeds that are the subject of patent applications and provides a range of services to support the bio-based economy, including biomaterial storage, DNA sequencing and contract research.

NCIMB’s culture collection curator, Dr Samantha Law said: “As regular attendees of the IBioIC’s annual conference, we are delighted to be more involved this year. The event is a great opportunity to hear presentations by experts from industry and academia and explore new opportunities.

“At NCIMB we have been involved in industrial biotechnology for decades, not only through our unique collection of industrially valuable microorganisms, but also with the provision of key services to support the industry and our participation in collaborative research projects. We are delighted to see this event go from strength to strength.”
