Your partner for the development of new bioeconomic technologies

The research and development projects of Fraunhofer EMB are given a new dynamic due to society's desire for a sustainable bio-based economy. Our technologies address global challenges such as climate change, the decline in biodiversity as well as the problem of increasingly scarce resources and usable space with a simultaneously growing world population.

In particular, biotechnology shows its key role as a driver and pioneer for new technologies and manufacturing processes.

The competencies and business areas of the Fraunhofer EMB have the prospect of securing biodiversity, optimizing the food supply and maintaining the health of the population through healthy food and innovative medical processes. This is not about improved long-term therapy but about regenerative healing.

We look forward to giving you impulses together with new technologies and products of the bioeconomy.

The EMB is an associated part of the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Individualized and Cell-Based Medical Engineering IMTE.



Alternative to fishing: cell-based fish from the bioreactor

Today, around 90 percent of all fish stocks are considered to be maximally exploited or overfished. But in view of the growing world population, more and more people are dependent on fish as a source of protein. Bluu GmbH has a solution to the problem. The company specializes in the production of cell-based fish.
