Synbio Manufacturing Innovation Institute Stakeholders Meeting

The EBRC is hosting a Synbio MII Stakeholders Meeting on January 24, 2020 in Houston, TX. We will outline our general vision for the institute and discuss community needs. Specifically, we will host a dialogue on Membership & Structure, R&D Planning, Institute Capacity Needs, Location, IP & Data Sharing, and Workforce Development. We will use input from this meeting to draft a framework of the Institute for community feedback, continued dialogue, and ultimately to create of a strong, proposing team.

As outlined in the U.S. Department of Defense recent Request for Information and Notice of Intent, the FOA will request the Synbio MII focus on innovations in biomanufacturing non-biomedical products, be structured to address both DoD and commercial applications, and focus on maturing technologies from TRL 4 to 7.
