Biotechnology YES 2015 is open for applications

 Biotechnology YES, now in its 20th year, is an innovative competition developed to raise awareness of the commercialisation of ideas among early career researchers. The competition is funded by sponsorship and aims to encourage an entrepreneurial culture in the UK postgraduate and postdoctoral base for the benefit of the UK bioeconomy.

 6 workshops are being held across the UK in the autumn and three of these are to be hosted by industry:

  • Plant, microbial and environment workshop hosted for the fifth year by Syngenta at Jealott’s Hill
  • Biomedical YES workshop again hosted by GSK and the Stevenage Bioscience Catalyst
  • Food, Nutrition and Wellbeing workshop hosted for the first time by Unilever at Colworth

The Royal Society of Chemistry is once again sponsoring teams to compete in Chemistry YES to be run in conjunction with the Biotechnology YES workshops.

 Environment YES, now in its 10th year, will once again be run alongside Biotechnology YES.

This competition is open to all bioscience early career researchers not just those funded by BBSRC.
