A chance to visit India and fly the flag for biochemical engineering
Innovate UK, BBSRC, EPSRC and the Department for Biotechnology of the Government of India are planning a UK-India Newton-Bhabha Fund joint call for innovative biological solutions in the area of industrial waste, to be launched in May.
To kick things off, a scoping mission to India has been planned for 20-25 March and will bring together decision makers, businesses and academics from both countries to contribute their expertise. It will focus on the specific waste issues India is facing (in certain industries) and identify potential solutions.
The organisers are keen to get a diverse range of opinions, so this is where you can really fly the flag for biochemical engineering. They are particularly interested in organisations/experts that have expertise in biological solutions for one or more of the waste streams, experience in working on waste challenges and bio-tech solutions that are relevant to India, and the capacity to represent biochemical engineering in their field and speak about the wider market for biological solutions.
If this sounds like something you want to be part of, further information and the application form to express your interest is available at: https://ktn-uk.co.uk/funding/scoping-workshop-biological-solutions-to-reducing-industrial-waste-environmental-inefficiency-and-pollution-in-india
Apply by 30 January 2017.
Travel and accommodation costs for successful applicants will be covered by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) through Newton Fund support from Innovate UK and BBSRC.
