In the dynamic world of biotechnology, biosciences, and chemistry, Unite! fosters collaboration and innovative networking as it drives joint proposal initiatives through an upcoming online matchmaking event to help us move towards a net-zero society. 

Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology are key to developing sustainable processes that use carbon dioxide and biomass as future resources across many industries. The upcoming online matchmaking event serves as a platform for scientific exchange and collaboration among Unite! researchers specializing in biotechnology, biosciences, and chemistry.
