Bio-researchers of the future get £22.5m boost 

THE next generation of researchers in bioscience have received a £22.5m investment from the UK government. 

The Collaborative Training Partnerships (CTP) scheme run by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) will address skills gaps in UK bioscience industry through doctoral training led by businesses. 

This will include creating value from unavoidable waste and by-products in agriculture, capacity building in the fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector and developing the expertise needed to use bioprocesses to establish sustainable manufacturing processes.
