This project entitled ‘Industrial Biotechnology Innovation and Synthetic Biology Accelerator 1.0’, aims to create a coordinated network of research infrastructure facilities that support industrial biotechnology. The work of the network is to open access to first-rate research facilities and lay the foundations for a permanent research infrastructure that will address some of the main challenges that are currently hampering the development of industrial biotechnology. VITO contributes with its infrastructure on bioprocess optimization and intensification.

The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement n. 730976
