Building the UK Synthetic Biology Cohort

Innovate UK is organising a series of events which will support the cohort of companies undertaking synthetic biology in the UK, including responsible innovation in a commercial context, communication tools for clear messaging and stakeholder engagement.

A communication tools workshop took place in October 2013 and hosted by the Science Media Centre (SMC), with the support of the SynBio SIG. The workshop considered the relationship between industry and the media in the evolution of the UK synthetic biology ecosystem.

Innovate UK continues to offer their full support to existing projects and new proposals, to ensure projects successfully work within their Responsible Innovation Framework (RIF), which will include a RI workshop.
