KETBIO Biotech Transfer
KETBIO is an EU-funded coordination action under HORIZON 2020 that aims to support the development of biotechnology research and development, a Key Enabling Technology (KET). Their platform is open to all professionals and scientists in the various fields of biotechnology.
The Key Enabling Technologies (KET) comprise a group of six technologies:
- Micro- and nano-electronics
- Industrial biotechnology
- Advanced materials
- Advanced manufacturing technologies
Biotechnology has the potential to be key to the circular economy since it covers a diverse range of fields, including biorefining, energy and waste conversion, textile production, agriculture and more.
KETBIO started in 2017, aiming to “to identify Europe’s most innovative results in biotechnology research and speed up their market uptake”. Their online hub has just been launched offering a valuable platform for the IB community.
The partners in KETBIO include:
- DECHEMA, Germany
- BIO-TECH Consulting, Poland
- Knowledge Transfer Network, UK
- PRACSIS, Belgium
- SP Processum AB, Sweden
- Sviluppo chimica, Italy
- TechnologieAllianz, Germany
