Thyme Project:
The project is part of a multi-million investment to drive university commercialisation across the country via Research England’s Connecting Capability Fund. The fast-growing bioeconomy represents a major economic opportunity for the UK and particularly for the North of England, which has world-class bioeconomy assets. This project will build on these regional assets to drive increased productivity of SMEs and large companies operating in the circular bioeconomy across Yorkshire, Humberside and the Tees Valley. The THYME Project will establish a new and highly innovative collaboration between the universities of York, Hull and Teesside that will become an exemplar for good practice in Knowledge Exchange between HEIs and industry, attracting trade and inward investment into sustainable bio-based industries and our HEIs.
