The Workshop will focus on exploring the challenges in translating biomanufacturing techniques and technologies into systems suitable for the International Space station (ISS) and future space colonies and identifying the cutting edge science and engineering that can be applied to address these challenges both from within CSIRO and in partnership with industry and academia.
