BE- Basic

BE- Basic

  • BE-Basic Foundation has been created to combine industrial biotechnology with ecological and environmental biotechnology already a decade ago. Over the past years, BE-Basic and its 50+ partners worked hard to investigate, develop and test industrial biobased solutions to build a sustainable society. BE-Basic brings together the best scientists, experts and commercial companies in the Netherlands to develop those innovations. The spectrum of activities has expanded considerably due to our national alliances with industry and governments, particularly in Europe, South and North America and South-East Asia.
