Impact Business acumen: The award funded the 2018 BrisSynBio and SynbiCITE 4-Day MBA, which is an interactive programme designed to provide the skills required to establish, build and manage a biotech or life sciences company based on synthetic biology. 26 early career researchers travelled to Bristol from around the UK and one participant travelled from Spain. Nine synthetic biology business plans were developed and pitched at the public BrisSynBio Connect event, which was attended by academics, indutrialists and investors.
