Scotland’s extensive marine bioresources present a tremendous opportunity to develop sustainable pathways and value chains to deliver the products, processes and energy that form part of our daily lives.

The Bioeconomy Cluster Builder and the Blue Economy Cluster Builder are pleased to collaborate on a workshop on industrial applications of marine biomass focusing on three areas:

- Microalgae
- Seaweed
- Fish aquaculture co-products

Following keynote presentations from thought leaders and industry challenge holders, participants will be invited to join themed breakout rooms to stimulate discussion and facilitate connections. Outputs from the breakout spaces will be analysed to identify opportunities for further exploration and development.

Keynote speakers

  • Professor Michele Stanley — Associate Director for Science, Enterprise and Innovation
    • Scottish Association for Marine Science
  • Dr Sara Holland – Senior Associate European and UK Patent Attorney
    • Potter Clarkson LLP

The Blue Economy Cluster Builder enables Scottish SMEs to take advantage of commercial, innovative and economic opportunities within the Blue Economy, in Scotland and internationally. As the foundation of a strong, sustainable, and diverse Blue Economy in Scotland, SMEs are the focus of the programme. The Blue Economy Cluster Builder provides an inclusive and free-of-charge service to ensure that Scotland’s SMEs are positioned to gain the optimum share of market growth. Get involved if you want to stay in the know on the latest news and information on the key sectors of Scotland’s Blue Economy.

The Bioeconomy Cluster Builder (BCB) is a three-year collaboration between the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC), KTN and Scottish Enterprise. The project aims to grow the Scottish bioeconomy by raising awareness of the applications and benefits of biotechnology and supporting the development of new value chains and markets for bio-based products. Using the extensive networks and knowledge of the three partner organisations, we connect the right people and resources — providing innovation support and signposting to funding opportunities. 

The BCB is an ERDF funded project. Information you provide as part of the registration process for this event may be shared between the partner organisations.
