A joint public lecture by the Royal Society of Tasmania, and Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE).
Australia's marine territory is vast, pristine and protected. It harbours the next generation of environmentally responsible resources and products – think bioplastics made from kelp, complementary medicines made from seaweed, beauty products extracted from fish roe. The Marine Bioproducts Cooperative Research Centre (MBCRC) and Australian biotechnology company Marinova are dedicated to growing marine resources, developing new processes that utilise those resources and creating new marine bioproducts that are market-ready.
This event will feature short presentations from the following outstanding speakers, followed by a panel discussion, and question-and-answer session.
- John Gunn FTSE (ATSE Chair Tasmanian Division): Introduction and global context for marine bioproducts
- Dr Justin Coombs (CEO Marine Bioproducts CRC): Scope and vision for Marine Bioproducts CRC
- Prof. Catriona Macleod (Interim Executive Director, IMAS): The Tasmanian context – opportunities for and from Tasmania
- Paul Garrott (managing Director Marinova): The Marinova story: Manufacturing sustainable biotechnologies
