Who are we?

BEACON is led by Aberystwyth University in collaboration with partners at Bangor, Swansea and South Wales Universities. BEACON has facilities in each of these four University locations, covering the whole of Wales. BEACON has been part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.

What do we bring to BioPilotsUK?

BEACON aims to contribute to developing renewable energy and assist in the transition to a low carbon economy with an overall objective of mitigating the impact of climate change, and focuses on the development of a viable Welsh bio-economy through the expansion of green supply chains.

“We have had a very successful partnership with BEACON in a number of challenging projects involving the development of biological routes to chemical intermediates. A strength has been the construction of diverse consortia of academics and commercial organisations.”
