 Project Acronym CARBAZYMES
 Starting Date 1st April 2015
 Project Duration 48 months
 Call Identifier H2020-LEIT-BIO-2014-1
 Grant Agreement No 635595
 Project Budget € 9,251,355
 EU Funding € 8,202,966

The setup of industrial biocatalytic processes requires an interdisciplinary approach, combining complementary expertise from biology, chemistry and chemical engineering.
The CARBAZYMES consortium is diverse in terms of sectorial representation being composed of the following 14 organisations that confer robustness to it:

  • 6 European Universities,
  • 6 SMEs, including bioinformatics, biocatalyst development, technology consultancy-all specialized in white biotechnology
  • 1 National Research Institute
  • 1 Multinational Company
