Experimentation

We offer an open innovation setting with ultramodern biomedical and pilot plant facilities. Within the framework of European co-funded research projects, we welcomed several new partners working together with us in creating new business opportunities in the agro, chemistry and health sector.

Biomedical
facility

The (Bio)medical Accelerator Matrix concept was developed for our projects and our customers with the financial support of the OPZuid program*. The underlying concept of quality and infrastructural support received ISO certification. Moreover, the Accelerator Matrix turned out to be a valid business concept as well. In 2019 we started the transfer of the Matrix concept to the newly established company Medace. Medace has turned the concept into a business model and as part of that, has designed and built a new and larger biomedical facility with improved capabilities at the Brightlands Maastricht Health Campus. InSciTe‘s projects and office have moved to this new Medace facility.

Biobased
facility

In 2019 we continued to expand our biobased pilot plant by designing and installing new processing equipment. Our specialized infrastructure for biobased chemistry at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus has been chosen to play a key role within the framework of the OPZuid ‘Meer doen met lignine’ research project*.

The proven success of the biomedical matrix

InSciTe’s Biomedical project manager Filip Maes and orthopaedic surgeon Paul Willems (Maastricht UMC+) reveal how their dedication to the development of the (Bio)medical Accelerator Matrix ‘BEAM-NL’ is now paying off.

Doing more with lignin

Whether the industry can use lignin on a large scale to produce sustainable materials and chemicals is now being explored by Vertoro's Michael Boot and Kelly Servaes of the Flemish institute VITO and other partners in the European-funded research project ‘Meer doen met lignine’.
