Biosensors for Bioprocesses

This all-day event, organised by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), will bring together members of diverse established communities to learn more about emerging biosensing technologies and how they might be applied to established industrial processes in commercial environments. 

In addition to keynote presentations from industry leaders, delegates have the opportunity to pitch their technology solutions or commercial requirements to make new connections to spark future collaborations. If you would like to make a 5-minute pitch, please complete the appropriate section of the registration form. Pitching slots will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so early registration is encouraged.
