SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership.

We may be a small research team, but we have big ideas and bigger dreams. BlueMicrobe (home of TeamV and #TheAllenLab) are all about thinking about the wider picture and how our work can make a difference. Ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. It’s a massive challenge. We know we can’t do it all ourselves, so we work with others who can help us.

We are strategically diverse in our interests: from the molecular workings of the smallest cells, to industrial scale processing of waste water. From high tech underwater robotics to low tech cultivation systems. From high value bioactive compounds, to low value fuel molecules. Offshore, onshore, it doesn’t matter to us. We work where we see there is a need and an opportunity. We strive to combine our unique knowhow in novel ways, pushing back the boundaries of science, engineering and even art! Our aim is to inspire others whilst making the world a better place.

'We are often described by academics as their favourite industrialists, and by industrialists as their favourite academics. The truth is, we lie somewhere in the middle, where we believe the greatest impact can be made.'
