In addition, plenary speakers from prominent biotechnology organizations, including Emami Ltd., Panacea, Dabur India Ltd., Biocon Academy, Mrida, Evolva Biotech, etc. will deliberate on the theme topics to bring out gaps and opportunities in R&D and biotech education.     

Green Biotechnology has come into focus due to the rapid degradation of the environment caused by pollution intensive industrial processes, products, and technologies. On the other hand, bio-based products made entirely or partially from biological biomass present a sustainable alternative to products solely produced by conventional and non-renewable resources and thus present the potential for a long-term shift away from fossil-based towards a bio-based economy.

The University has a state-of-the-art infrastructure for Biotechnology research, to not only educate competent professionals but also develop environment-friendly technologies in a sustainable manner. In that direction, the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India has funded a multi-institutional network research program to produce genetically authentic herbal biomass of high-value medicinal herbs and develop engineered production platforms for industrially important phytochemicals. 

The seminar is a part of the scientific collaboration between Bennett University; G.B. Pant National Institute of Himalayan Environment & Sustainable Development, Kullu, H.P.; and the Zandu Foundation for Health Care to develop technologies for mass production of quality herbal biomass as per the needs of industry as well as creating entrepreneurial avenues among rural communities.

The seminar is expected to ignite enthusiasm and bring together different stakeholders from the biotechnology industry to deliberate on maximizing entrepreneurial avenues among rural communities, right from the production of biomass to processing bio-based products and marketing. The national seminar has been structured in two sessions with expert panel discussions on;
i) Biomass Production, Bio-based Products & Rural Entrepreneurship;
ii) Biotech Professionals in the 21st Century.
