BBSRC, with the support of EPSRC, have committed £11 million to fund 6 unique collaborative Networks in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (BBSRC NIBB), following on from the achievements of the 13 Phase I BBSRC NIBB funded in 2014. This second phase of the BBSRC NIBB will continue to build capacity and capability in the UK supporting research and translation in biologically based manufacturing, with the aim of continuing to foster collaboration between academic researchers and business at all levels, in order to find new approaches though excellent research to tackle research challenges and help deliver key benefits in industrial biotechnology and bioenergy.
