Latest BioProNET News

Welcome to BioProNET

BioProNET is a network in the field of bioprocessing and biologics that brings together academics, industrialists and other special interest groups for collaborative research to accelerate innovation and deliver change.


We currently have almost 700 members who have the opportunity to apply for dedicated funding and attend network events that will allow the community to build consortia to identify key challenges and opportunities in the area of bioprocessing. BioProNET supports early-career researchers to attend events and to develop the profile, skills and expertise that is required by the industrial biotechnology community. Join us now!

Upcoming events

Our next event is our 3rd Annual Science Meeting, to be held at the East Midlands Conference Centre on October 19-20th. Registration is now closed but contact Charlotte if you wish to be added to the wait list; the programme is available here. We’ve got a great line-up of speakers, half of who are international scientists.


To date we have awarded about £150k of business interaction voucher funding and about £740k of proof of concept funding, which has been boosted by around £340k of funding from industry. Our funding aims to finance initial collaborative projects related to BioProNET scope that will springboard future funding applications. The next deadline for proof of concept funding is midday on Friday November 4th, and the next deadline for business interaction vouchers is midday on Friday 13th January. More information can be found here.

A new application form for proof of concept funding is now being used (as of September 26th 2016). More information is available by clicking on the above link.
