At the WEFO (Welsh European Funding Office) Annual Conference held at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea, on Thursday 3rd December 2015, Jane Hutt, the Welsh Finance Minister, announced European-backed funding for the next stage of the BEACON project, BEACON+. The BEACON+ project will see scientists from Swansea, Bangor, and Aberystwyth Universities work with industrial partners to develop renewable materials, fuels, and chemicals, using green technology.

Following the announcement, the minister toured our facilities at the Centre for Cytochrome P450 Biodiversity to talk to BEACON scientists from our team, Aberystwyth, and Bangor, as well as SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) we have helped through this project.
