What is the Engineering Biology Supply Chain?

Engineering Biology (or EngBio) is the design, scaling and commercialisation of biology-derived products and services. As a whole, the UK’s Engineering Biology industry provides innovative solutions to climate change challenges, enabling new approaches to support food production, sustainability and more.

We’ve mapped the EngBio supply chain and applications. The EngBio Supply Chain are companies that are providing materials, components and processes required in the designing, scaling and commercialization of biology-derived products and services.

Companies in the Engineering Biology supply chain specialise in manufacturing, robotics production, diagnostics, AI development and more. These are the industries that support Engineering Biology applications.

    Companies involved in the supplychain side of engineering biology sector.This RTIC has been developed through a collaboration between DSIT internal subject matter experts and analysts, soliciting feedback with the cross-Whitehall Engineering Biology network and The Data City over summer 2023. They have been integral in the taxonomy development as well as quality assurance. To understand the taxonomy or the caveats associated with the RTIC do get in touch with the DSIT engbio team or with Data city. The current RTIC will have future updates, if and when there are new sources that are brought to the attention of the DSIT EngBio team. Or, DSIT deem the list to need a substantive update due to time elapsed or if there are new subsectors to include.
