National Synthetic Biology scoping study – Sydney consultation


In the May 2018 budget, the Commonwealth Government announced its long-term investment in support of the Australian Government National Research Infrastructure Roadmap.

The Investment Plan includes funding for a scoping study to progress work in Synthetic Biology. Bioplatforms Australia, with an expert working panel, is conducting an open forum for researchers and other stakeholders to clarify specific needs and gaps in infrastructure requirements for innovations in this field.


Bioplatforms Australia will be visiting most capital cities in the coming months commencing with Sydney (30 October), Brisbane (7 November), and Melbourne (10 December). More details and locations to come.

We invite you to attend the Sydney consultation event that will be held at the University of Sydney Business School on Tuesday 30 October 2018, and will provide an opportunity for input.

Please register to the consultation event through the dedicated EventBrite page to ensure that numbers can be adequately accommodated.
