Online training opportunity in Industrial Biotechnology

A series of online training modules are available from January 2016.

BBSRC and Abertystwyth University have jointly funded an online distance learning advanced training partnership in IB. Equip yourself with the skills and knowledge to be part of the new bio-economy!

The time is ripe to develop low carbon alternatives to petroleum-based products both in terms of what society wants and what economics demand. This makes it’s an exciting time to be part of the rapidly developing Biotech Industries. However, biorefining is a highly technical field and the successful growth of the industry is resulting in a lack of sufficient staff with the technical knowledge necessary to support its expansion. This new training programme has been designed in consultation with existing UK industries to address this skills shortage. Since this programme is aimed at people who are already working, training is via distance learning and we hope to complement this with some workshops.

Options include individual modules to increase your knowledge or working towards a range of postgraduate qualifications.
