The specific objective for this group is to develop competitive, sustainable, safe and secure, and innovative industrial products and processes, and contribute as an innovation driver in a number of European sectors like:
- Agriculture, Forestry and Food
Projects should lead to:
- Cutting-edge biotechnologies as future innovation drivers: Synthetic biology (due to its potential to influence or event transform large areas of our economy and society), and Bioinformatics (critical to realise full value of biotechnology).
- Biotechnology-based industrial processes driving competitiveness and sustainability. Addresses technology driven R&D targeting industrial bottlenecks.
- Innovative and competitive platform technologies. Furthering technological development of metagenomics technologies in terms of increased accuracy and costs reduction to expand their potential
