About the event

Uniting innovators of transformative bioscience data and technology is a priority at the Earlham Institute. 

EI Innovate is an annual engagement event that provides insight into the Earlham Institute's research, exploring opportunities for innovation and collaboration. Specialising in agri-food, biotech, med-tech and public health, we have a wealth of experience collaborating with others to develop potential solutions to urgent industrial and societal challenges. 


This year we will be showcasing our two new strategic programmes of research - Cellular Genomics and Decoding Biodiversity - and two National Bioscience Research Infrastructures (NBRIs) - Transformative Genomics and the Earlham Biofoundry.

Earlier this year, the Earlham Institute was awarded £31.4m from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), part of UKRI, to deliver these ambitious programmes of research through the development of new technology, and delivery of innovation and impact over the next five years. 

EI Innovate events foster exciting and valuable conversations between academia and industry. An example of an exciting collaboration that resulted from a previous EI Innovate is the Hybrid Wheat Initiative, which connects 25 breeding companies and research institutes worldwide, to resolve the critical challenge of hybrid wheat.

Who is this event for:

EI Innovate provides the platform to connect across disciplines and between academia and industry to discuss current scientific and technical advances and industry challenges.

Each year EI Innovate brings together attendees from a range of sectors including agri-food, biotech, med-tech sectors, clinicians, developers of instrumentation, tools, products and services for genomics and bioinformatics. 

This event will also be of interest to funders of life science innovation, government departments, and other academic organisations.
