Science and Innovation audit of the North of England’s bioeconomy
The North of England's bioeconomy is set to generate £25 billion GVA and support around five million jobs by 2030, according to a Government-sponsored report. The report finds that the region has extensive research capability in science to underpin the bioeconomy, outperforming the rest of the country in many areas.
The report was one of the Government’s Science and Innovation Audits: studies that enable local consortia to focus on analysing regional strengths and identifying mechanisms to realise their potential. BioVale was a member of the consortium tasked with assessing regional strengths and opportunities in the bioeconomy of the North of England.
