BRAIN meeting in office

Networks are part of our DNA

The idea of networking and open innovation as lived in academic research is proverbially anchored in our genes, as we began life as a university-based start-up (B.R.A.I.N. - Biotechnology Research and Information Network, today BRAIN Biotech).

A key component of the work performed by our scientists is engage in an exchange of the latest insights into highly specialized subject areas with scientists at international research institutes. In some cases, the industrial applications of these findings will only come to fruition in the distant future.

We are also regularly present at international trade shows and conferences in order to engage in industrial networking, explore the market and the customer needs, and to present our own products and offer R&D cooperation.

Strategic alliances create innovation

Scientific and technical challenges can best be met by interdisciplinary teams, as is shown by the NatLifE 2020 and ZeroCarbFP alliances which we coordinated in the past.

NatLifE 2020

Since 2013, the "Natural Life Excellence Network 2020" that is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has been working to develop sustainable production processes and new test systems for innovative bioactive ingredients, proteins and small molecules for the food and cosmetics industries.

ZeroCarb FP

The "ZeroCarbonFootPrint" alliance supported by BMBF aims to transform residual and waste streams into new valuable materials that can be put to industrial use. These are bio-based additives for manufacturing high-tech oils or functional biomass for sustainable ore processing and metal recycling processes. The aim is to establish intelligent material cycles that keep the utilized resources within a value chain after their primary use.
