Celtic Renewables scientist Eve Hamilton was the proud recipient of the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC) Communication With Impact Award, which was presented to her at the annual IBioIC conference in Glasgow.
This was the 9th hosting of the annual IBioIC conference which is the largest industrial biotechnology conference in the UK. Eve received her award at the gala conference dinner which was attended by key figures from across policy, industry, and academia.
Eve graduated from the University of Strathclyde with a First Class Honours degree in Microbiology and Pharmacology. She also received the University Microbiology Prize, which is awarded to the student with the best academic performance in Microbiology in their final year. Eve continued her education at the University of Strathclyde to graduate with distinction with a master’s degree in Industrial Biotechnology, co-ordinated by IBioIC.
Her commitment to microbiology applications in industry, sustainability, and the circular economy lead her to Celtic Renewables where she works as an integral part of the Research and Innovation team, which is headed by another award-winning Eve – Dr Eve Bird.
The industrial biotechnology conference was themed around the bioeconomy, where Celtic Renewables play a pivotal role. The conference was addressed by a diversity of figures, from the Minister for Business, Trade, Tourism and Enterprise, Ivan McKee, to athlete and broadcaster Mark Beaumont. Celtic Renewables CEO, Mark Simmers, also spoke at the conference where he addressed issues of scaling up a bio-based process.
