International competition accelerates the need for improved and cost-effective production and process facilities.

The establishment of world-class research that enables the development of radically new methods of optimising the processes used by biotech businesses is a precondition for satisfying this need.

BIOPRO’s activities are based on the challenges facing everyday industrial production. The businesses involved are global players in their respective industries. No matter if the end products are industrial enzymes, pharmaceuticals, bio-based energy or food ingredients, the ability to understand and manage production processes is a key parameter with great significance to the ability to compete in the world market.
