Have your say on IB policy

The House of Commons Science and Technology Committee is undertaking an inquiry into the “technologies needed to meet Clean Growth emissions reduction targets“. As a network founded to promote Industrial Biotechnology (IB), CBMNet feels it is important to raise awareness of the role IB can play in the government’s “Clean Growth” strategy.

Therefore, we are asking for your opinions on how well IB is supported by current government policy/funding with the aim of submitting evidence to this inquiry. We would appreciate you taking the time to fill in this short survey; it should take you less than 5 minutes and is anonymous.



Interested in government policy in general? There are other ways you can get involved:

  • The Biochemical Society Policy Network: an informal group of members of the Biochemical Society interested in science and educational policy who are keen to feed into our activities in these areas
  • The Microbiology Society: provides a number of opportunities for members to engage in science policy
  • Academic Fellowships: opportunities for academic researchers at any stage of their career to conduct research within Parliament
  • All Party Parliamentary Groups: informal cross-party groups run by and for Members of the Commons and Lords, some of which choose to involve individuals and organisations from outside Parliament
