On November 22nd 2018, Bavarian researchers gathered for the third time to present their work carried out within the project consortium BayBiotech. Event venue this time was the Faculty Club of the Institute of Advanced Study of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Garching. The meeting was scheduled to terminate this successful research project officially and to present the related results. Again, Dr. Ludwig Körber, member of the BVT institute and in charge of the coordination project within BayBiotech, was responsible for the organization of the event. After the welcome address of the dean of the Department of Chemistry of the TUM, Prof. Dr. Stephan Sieber, the State Minister in the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and Consumer Protection, Thorsten Glauber, whose institution financed BayBiotech, examined in one of his first official duties the influence of biotechnology on Bavaria. Following a panel discussion, among others with the former head of the BVT institute and the initiator of the BayBiotec consortium, Prof. Rainer Buchholz, minister Glauber discussed with the BayBiotech researchers their results in a short poster session. Prof. Castiglione presented, together with Prof. Weuster-Botz (TUM), her work concerning the resource-efficient production of fine chemicals (see photo).
