  • How is biotechnology fuelling the next leap in material innovation, and what examples are we seeing where innovators are harnessing nature to create products and solutions that are more robust than traditional chemical or petroleum manufacturing? 
  • How scalable are these advanced materials, or are they set to be niche? How are brands applying these unique materials to create sustainable luxury products? Can luxury be sustainable? What does it take to get these new materials into factories?
  • What has been the role of consortiums in accelerating the R&D behind advanced biodesigned materials? How have partnerships with brands been a vehicle for proof of concept, and what has that meant for the scalability of these solutions?  
  • What are the most pressing challenges in scaling new technologies, and what can industry do to help? How much consideration is being put into the infrastructure needed to compete at scale?
