Algae biotech hub to push NSW bioeconomy

NSW Government $1m grant helps drive algae-based Deep Green Biotech Hub at UTS.
The East Australian Current (EAC) has a significant impact on the ecology of eastern Australia. Using novel techniques and technology, scientists aboard RV Investigator, including C3's Martina Doblin, are investigating the microscopic marine life that forms the base of the marine foodweb. With indications that the EAC will warm by 2 - 3°C by 2070, the shipboard experiments will provide information about the potential impacts on the marine foodweb, including commercial fisheries.
Eleven of the State’s leading universities, and the CSIRO, are partnering with the NSW Government to develop a new statewide innovation network giving start-up businesses access to expertise and resources they need to make their idea a success.
Sydney Harbour coral recovery study aims to understand what makes these unique temperate corals so hardy.
A $1m NSW Government grant will support an innovative bio-manufacturing facility at UTS. Based on algae and known as the Deep Green Biotech Hub, it will connect industry, entrepreneurs and students to boost the state’s bio-economy.
