Synthetic Biology is the use of engineering to design and construct biological parts and systems in order to address current major challenges, including applications in the fields of environmental sciences, nutrition, cleantech and biotech.

In 2012, the UK Government identified Synthetic Biology as one of the seven emerging technologies of the future with strong growth potential. It is predicted that the global Synthetic Biology market will reach over $38 billion by 2020.

On 11th October, the Innovation Forum is bringing together Synthetic Biology leading experts from academia and industry with entrepreneurs, investors and policymakers to discuss current findings and explore future trends in the field, followed by a networking session over drinks and nibbles.
