SynBioBeta shares its excitement about the upcoming SynbiTECH 2019 conference: 

"On June 24-25, the brightest and best synthetic biology innovators from the UK and around the world will come together at SynbiTECH, a gathering of start-ups, business leaders, investors, and policymakers. The goal: to explore the power of synthetic biology to transform our society and to accelerate the expansion of the rapidly growing bioeconomy.

The meeting’s co-presidents — Professors Richard Kitney and Paul Freemont — are two of the biggest names in UK synthetic biology. At Imperial College, they founded SynbiCITE, which to date has helped launch over one hundred SMEs (small to medium enterprises) that comprise a big part of the UK’s 220 billion-pound bioeconomy. The government estimates its bioeconomy will double by 2030, in some measure due to small synthetic biology companies."
