As companies and technologies in the bioeconomy are poised to scale, and distributed biomanufacturing grows, there is a new sense of urgency to identify global technical standards and metrology for engineering biology. The lack of standardization across many aspects of the bioeconomy innovation pipeline is likely to cause major challenges with data integration and interoperability, regulatory clarity, product quality, and consumer transactions.

This workshop is one of a series of three taking place in regions around the world. We are convening to gather information and share expertise in order to identify community and stakeholder driven scientific, technical, operational, and semantics standards to enable and drive scale up capabilities, improve reproducibility across batches and geographies, and enhance the performance of microbial factories and bio-products.

These activities will lay the groundwork to establish open voluntary standards for engineering biology that enable the rapid growth and success of the bioeconomy.

We have limited funds available to support the travel and accommodations of some participants; if we are able to cover your expenses, this has been stated explicitly in your invitation and we will follow up with additional details. We will hold a room for you based on your response to the accommodations prompt in the registration form, regardless of payee.

This workshop is by invitation only, as space is limited. If you have not received a personalized invitation and are interested in attending, please email
