1 The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustanability, DTU Presentation of the center at Plastdagen 5 May 2011 by Bo Skjold Larsen, COO.
2 Center for Biosustainability BIOSUSTAINABILITY: through metabolic and cell engineering revolutionizing chemical production from being an oil-based industry to a bio-based industry. A research unit aimed at revolutionizing biological routes to chemical production through intelligent design of cell factories 2
3 Transition to Bio-refinery
4 Prediction of market shares for Bio-based chemicals
5 Objectives To facilitate the emergence of the next generation of cell factories through the application of cutting edge technologies such as metagenomic systems biology, and genome-scale network reconstruction Spectrum of chemistry that can be produced biologically Shorten the time of production strain development Innovation through development of new technologies and transfer of knowledge to industry for the benefit of society. Development of talents the future driving force of bio-based sustainability 5

14 Innovation A center conducting applied and basic research where innovation and tech transfer are key activities in terms of: Collaboration with Danish and international companies Patents Start-up of new biotech-based companies Will operate with a strategic business development office Located in a big Biotech Cluster in the Øresund region (Medicon Valley) 14
16 The Cluster A high concentration of science - 12 universities, 5 of which supply life science related educations A high concentration of business - Approx. 80 (red) biotech companies, 20 pharma companies, 100 medtech companies A high concentration of start-up facilities - 7 science parks, 6 incubators, approx. 80 contract research organisations and contract manufacturing organisations Source: Medicon Valley Statistics
17 Growth and a high degree of entrepreneurship
19 Wrap up Research and demonstration: Platform strain construction: Selection of 2-3 genetically modifiable host cells as model organisms Improving production organisms (yield, stability, requirements, scalable) Selection of a limited number of chemical target compounds suitable for bioproduction and of high relevance (commercial potential, sustainability, common use) Screenable target compounds with relatively simple pathways Shorten development time of new production strain Collaboration on projects together with leading international research groups and relevant industry Tech transfer and start-up of new companies 19
