The Il Bioeconomista, the first bioeconomy blog, recently featured an interview with Iris Aquilina Anderson, founder of the Bioladies Network talking about the bioeconomy from the female perspective.

The Bioladies Network was also featured in the Innovators Magazine in January 2018 as part of the special edition on biotechnology.

In promoting the Network it was said that: “The Bioladies Network offers women working in the bioeconomy a valuable forum not only to expand professional contacts, but also an environment to foster peer support and informal mentoring. This network is unique in that it aims to support women, in the UK, EU and internationally, in an emerging area of the economy that is still considered niche, despite the potential. Women from diverse sectors are welcome to join the network. Professionals from academia, public sector, NGOs, R&D, outreach and consultancy are amongst those who are members. Industries represented include agriculture, food, construction, packaging and biopesticides. “
