Research Projects

The call is supporting research projects concerned with biocatalysis, i.e. the chemical transformation catalyzed by one or multiple enzymes in any form, and platforms enabling the discovery, application and optimization of biocatalysts.

Seven projects were selected for funding

Projects funded

Based on the recommendation of the Working Group the Scientific Committee selected seven research projects for funding.

Call «Research Projects»

The call is supporting projects concerned with biocatalysis, i.e. the chemical transformation catalyzed by one or multiple enzymes in any form, and platforms enabling the discovery, application and optimization of biocatalysts.

  • Process design of biocatalytic reactions or enzyme production processes  
  • Improvement of enzyme scope, robustness and production cost
  • Novel biocatalytic transformations (e.g. implementation of underexploited enzyme families, cascade reactions, improved cofactor recycling, enzyme repurposing)
  • Generic chassis strain development
  • Acceleration of biocatalytic route development (e.g. via bioretrosynthesis, HTS screening methods, smart enzyme library design)
  • New applications in biocatalysis (e.g. biopolymers with new properties, functionalization of surfaces, cell free protein expression, diagnostics)
