FoodWasteNet is one of 13 BBSRC funded collaborative Networks in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (BBSRC NIBB). All networks will drive new ideas to harness the potential of biological resources for producing and processing materials, biopharmaceuticals, chemicals and energy.
The BBSRC NIBB aim to foster collaborations between academia, industry, policy makers and NGOs in order to find new approaches to tackle research challenges, translate research and deliver key benefits in Industrial Biotechnology & Bioenergy.
The BBSRC publishes a quarterly BBSRC NIBB Activities Update (as a downloadable pdf) on its website.
Each network has a particular focus area. Activities are focused in the UK, but the networks also have interest in building international links.
