DTU BIOSUSTAIN Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability
The aim of The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability is to develop new knowledge and technologies to support the transformation from conventional, and often unsustainable, industrial production methods to a sustainable bio-based industry.
In this bio-based industry, chemicals and other products are produced using microbial production hosts – cell factories.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability has existed for almost a decade and was at its conception the world’s first interdisciplinary research centre within sustainability. Our research contributes to developing sustainable products within 3 categories: Sustainable Chemicals, Natural Products and Microbial Food.
The Center also focuses on educating the next generations of young scientists within the cross-field of biotechnology and data science, in order to contribute to the Danish biotech-ecosystem with highly skilled scientists and future leaders.
