Kick-off meeting!

Last week we kicked off the W-BioCat project with a dynamic hybrid meeting (online and in person in Delft, The Netherlands) 🚀

18 experts from Delft University of Technology, Weizmann Institute of Science, Università degli Studi di Firenze, University of Oxford, EvoEnzyme, HydRegen, together with the Industrial Advisory Board formed by Evonik, Axxence, and ChainCraft will focus on the development of tungsten-containing enzymes for application in a sustainable chemical industry. The project is supported by the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA).

During the meeting, we delved into crucial aspects for the W-BioCat project and set the foundation for a successful journey ahead:

📋 Project Plan: Setting the roadmap to navigate through the project objectives and outcomes.

🔍 Data Management Plan: Ensuring the effective handling, storage, and sharing of our project data.

📡 Communication and Dissemination Plan: Strategizing how we'll share our progress, findings, and new methods with the wider community.

💡 IP Strategy and Exploitation Plan: Safeguarding the intellectual property while maximizing its potential for impact.

In addition, two Public Lectures were attended by more than 45 people. Maurice Oltheten from ChainCraft gave a lecture on “Turning chemistry circular” and Kylie Vincent from University of Oxford on “Exploiting hydrogenase in biotechnology enables hydrogen as a cleaner reductant”.

Finally, we went on a Lab Tour to explore Delft University of Technology facilities and resources.

Looking forward to the exciting journey ahead!
