Professor W.D. Fessner, the Carbazymes coordinator from the Technische Universität Darmstadt and Dr Rainer Wardenga from the Small-Medium Enterprise (SME) Enzymicals participated in the 2015 EC-Workshop: “Maximising the Impact of KET Biotechnology” which took place on the 22nd September, in Brussels. They were invited to present the Carbazymes project and its ambition, as part of the H2020 projects in KET Biotechnology.
The international project CARBAZYMES “Sustainable industrial processes based on a C-C bond-forming enzyme platform” started in April 2015 and involves the participation of 14 enterprises and research centers from 5 different countries under the coordination of Professor Fessner from the Technische Universität Darmstadt.
A total amount of € 9,251,355 will be invested in the Carbazymes project, of which € 8,202,966 are funded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 Programme under GA 635595.
During its course, the CARBAZYMES project will develop the biocatalytic synthesis of 4 APIs and 3 bulk chemicals as representatives of market needs using a broad platform of 4 types of unique C-C bond forming enzymes.
The project´s kick-off meeting took place on 23 April 2015 in Brussels. Representatives from the 14 beneficiaries of the consortium met with the project officer in order to get Carbazymes off to a good start.
