Bionexgen

03.12.2013

Under the Seventh Framework Programme, the European Commission has invested substantially into driving the bioeconomy and specifically in KBBE Activity 2.3 Life sciences, biotechnology and biochemistry for sustainable non-food products and processes. BIONEXGEN is a flagship project within this activity, with the goal to develop the next generation of biocatalysts to be used for eco-efficient manufacturing processes in the chemical industry. Having benefited from a total project budget of over €10m, the research objectives for BIONEXGEN included:

• The design and optimization of enzymes to be used in synthetic chemistry

• The development of modified microorganisms which are resistant to heat, pressure or low pH, suitable for use in industrial production

       • The integration of these biotechnological steps into applied chemical processes

When: 3rd December 2013

Where: Merode Suite, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Brussels Airport

Time: 10.00 to 16.45: The next generation of biocatalysis for industrial chemical synthesis (costs €25)

17.15 to 19.30: Industrial Biotechnology for Europe. (FREE)
