With EUR 3.7M for academia and industry INTERfaces intends to pave the way for enzymatic based sustainable production of chemicals. Under the lead of Prof. Selin Kara from Aarhus University Denmark, 21 European industries and universities are teamed up in this project to create natural and sustainable chemical products by mimicking the metabolism of living organisms.
“Successful applied science not only needs to be interdisciplinary but should also be at the interface between ground-breaking research and industrial implementation. Therefore, the strong involvement of three large companies and ten high-tech start-ups is crucial to achieve our goals in this project” is said by the project leader Prof. Selin Kara.
The project will be upscaled in collaboration with the industrial sector. For this, a total of 9 academic institutions and 13 private sector organisations, ranging from high-tech SMEs to large-scale production companies, are taking part in the project from Jan. 2020 – Dec. 2023 on. We are proud to be part of this highly innovative project, and to contribute by our experience and expertise for transferring enzymatic reaction cascades towards industrial applications.
