THYME (Teesside, Hull and York - Mobilising Bioeconomy Knowledge Exchange) is a collaboration between the Universities of Teesside, Hull and York to establish a world-leading bioeconomy region across Yorkshire, Humberside and the Tees Valley. This project is funded by Research England via its Connecting Capability Fund.
The bioeconomy is the production of renewable biological resources and their conversion into food, feed, energy, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and other materials and is estimated to be worth £220 Billion GVA in the UK alone. The Government's Industrial Strategy has ambitious targets to double its size by 2030.
This represents a major economic opportunity for the UK and particularly for the North of England, which has world-class bioeconomy assets. THYME aims to build on these to boost the region's economy, create jobs and deliver major environmental benefits for the region and for companies operating in the bioeconomy.
