Universities, companies, and other institutions work together intensively in the InSciTe projects, united by a common purpose. There is an increasing number of partners who understand the important benefits of our form of collaboration. In 2018, we welcomed several new partners – in both the biobased and biomedical fields – who are working together with us to bridge the gap between science and the market.


In 2018 our biomedical facility received its ISO 13485 certificate. Next to the many InSciTe projects, 4 startup companies use this unique environment as a home base for the development of their concepts towards clinical application. The facility is running now at maximum capacity and for that reason we, together with Medace, have started to design a new facility, twice the size, to be inaugurated by the end of 2019.


In InSciTe's biobased pilot plant facility, preparations were made in 2018 for the opening of yet another new pilot installation for converting agricultural waste streams into high-quality products. The Chemelot InSciTe pilot plant focuses on scaling up biobased processes and sees this as the next step in valorizing promising and sustainable innovations.
