Communicating the Bioeconomy
Three UK Bioscience Leadership Councils joined forces to produce a set of¬†infographics to aid communication of the bioeconomy.
Bioeconomy is a word that is widely used by government bodies, industry and academia in connection with biobased product, processes and services.
A working definition of the word “bioeconomy ” is all economic activity derived from bio-based¬†products and processes which contributes to¬†sustainable and resource-efficient solutions¬†to the challenges we face in food, chemicals,¬†materials, energy production, health and¬†environmental protection.
In 2015¬†three UK Bioscience Leadership Councils – Industrial Biotechnology Leadership Forum (IBLF), Agri-tech Leadership Council (ATLC), Synthetic Biology Leadership Council (SBLC) – joined forces to produce a set of¬†¬†infographics to aid communication of concepts around the bioeconomy.
Photo galleries are not available for content from the previous KTN website: we apologise for this.
The infographics include slides on Challenges & Opportunities, Enablers, and Unpacking the Bioeconomy, plus¬†case studies examples of current bioeconomy solutions, and future potential developments:
- Bluetongue virus vaccine (current activities)
- Agri-Technology used to step-change photosynthesis¬†(future potential)
- Synthetic biology project makes male mosquitoes that cannot reproduce¬†(current activities)
- Plants as pharmaceutical factories¬†(future potential)
- Anti-ageing skin care¬†(current activities/future potential)
- Sustainable energy (future potential)
