BioYorkshire is a unique public-private partnership that brings together some of the UK's leading science and industrial people and organisations.
The ambitious programme is led by the University of York, Fera Science and Askham Bryan College. Together, it will transform the UK’s bioeconomy through an ‘end to end’ programme.

The BioYorkshire Industrial Advisory Group brings together a range of wider partners and supporters working together to drive forward the programme.
Led by Steve Bagshaw CBE - who has over 35 years’ experience across the biotechnologies and fine chemicals business and manufacturing sectors and most recently worked on the UK Government's Vaccines Task Force - the Group is committed to widening the participation of industry in BioYorkshire and the broader bioeconomy.
