    BEACON would like to invite you to this exciting and FREE seminar to learn more about the commercialisation of “plants to products” in the bio-economy.

    The Seminar includes wide ranging topics such as:

    •  How BEACON adds value to your business as the “bridge to market” for new product, process and technology development and thus helps minimize market risk
    •  How businesses can access a range of pilot-scale equipment and scientific expertise for research and development work
    •  How to identify, protect and exploit your Intellectual Property (IP) in the marketplace and create value for your business
    •  The impact of IP on the development of natural cosmetics
    •  The financial support available from Welsh Government to commercially exploit your IP

    Following a series of presentations by legal and industry professionals and Welsh Government there will be a Q&A session with opportunities to ask questions. The seminar will close with a buffet lunch and networking.

    This seminar will appeal to micro businesses, start-up companies, SMEs and large corporates active in the bio-economy in Wales. Market sectors ripe for development include agriculture, natural cosmetics, forest and natural products, natural fibres, health and medical, bio-based polymers, nutraceutical and pharmaceutical.
