Technology Roadmapping
Technology roadmapping is all about creating a consensus strategy for the future of biomanufacturing. This allows us to work together as a community in a single direction and provide a strong voice to researchers, technology developers and regulators. It also allows our members to lower the risks associated with new technologies by building requirements and proof of concepts together.
