Our researchers

For generations, the University of Copenhagen and the Technical University of Denmark have educated some of the world's leading capacities within biotech. The development of BIOPRO is largely based on the knowledge held by these two universities combined with the generation of new knowledge.

Researchers from the two universities form a team that also comprises key staff from the participating biotech manufacturers and is to generate groundbreaking knowledge.

By forming close links between research and development on the one hand and the production of the biotech manufacturers participating in BIOPRO on the other, laboratory will be integrated with production in full scale. Seen from a research and development perspective, BIOPRO offers unprecedented opportunities for understanding the dynamics of biotechnological processes and developing these further.

BIOPRO has 5 scientific areas headed by scientific lead Professor Krist V. Gerneay :

  • Measurement technology headed by Professor Søren Balling Engelsen and Assoc. Professor Thomas Skov (KU FOOD)
  • Mechanistic models headed by Professor Krist V. Gernaey (DTU CAPEC-PROCESS)
  • Statistical data analysis headed by Assoc. Professor Murat Kulahci (DTU COMPUTE)
  • Operation and Control headed by Assoc. Professor Jakob Kjøbsted Huusom (DTU CAPEC-PROCESS)
  • Visualization interfaces headed by Professor Kasper Hornbæk and Assoc. Professor Mikkel Rønne Jakobsen (KU Computer Science)
The Center for Process Engineering and Technology, PROCESS, under the Technical University of Denmark, DTU, is internationally renowned for its research aimed at the development and implementation of the next generation sustainable processes in the chemical, bio-based and pharmaceutical industries. PROCESS works at the interface between several disciplines, including biotechnology, process engineering, chemistry and systems engineering.

University of Copenhagen

The Department of Food Science at the University of Copenhagen is a globally leading research unit for the development of multivariate spectroscopic measuring methods for on-line monitoring and optimisation of bioprocesses in the food, pharmaceutical and biotech industries.

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Copenhagen is internationally renowned for empirical studies of human-computer interaction, expertise in usability evaluation and usability measures, and research in advanced user interfaces such as wall-sized displays and interactive visualizations.

University talents learned about the opportunities offered by BIOPRO Academy

University students and high-school talents recently gathered at BIOPRO Academy in Kalundborg, Denmark, to hear more about BIOPRO and the projects supported by the partnership. 

BIOPRO boosts growth for small enterprise

The small enterprise Q-Interline has worked out a new business concept on the back of the results achieved by the BIOPRO partnership. 

Based on its collaboration with BIOPRO, Q-Interline has developed its production and now expects its turnover in the after-sales market to soar by 50 percent.

How to get more innovation out of R&D billions

In spite of a high level of R&D Denmark does not get enough innovation out of its investments. BIOPRO has developed a new collaboration model to strengthen ties between universities and industry. The aim is more growth and job creation.
