Our coordinatior Marco Fraaije is organising the 14th International Symposium on Biocatalysis and Biotransformations (BioTrans 2019) on July 7-11, 2019, in Groningen, The Netherlands.
This will be a great opportunity to find out about a range of ROBOX results.
We would like to see you there.

Innovation Radar Initiative

ROBOX were recently part of the Innovative Radar Initiative (see video of how the EU H2020 program supports many established and new ideas that help EU citizens) Our partner TUG Graz were finalists in the “Industrial & Enabling Tech” prize category InnoSyn were finalists in the “Best Young SME” category. The Innovation Radar is a…

KETOREDUCTASES – patent from cLEcta partner of ROBOX

Our partner cLEcta have had their patent “KETOREDUCTASES” WO 2019/012095 A1 published. This invention relates to ketoreductases and their use that are particularly useful for enzymatically catalyzing the reduction of ketones to chiral or non-chiral secondary alcohols and oxidation of chiral or non-chiral secondary alcohols to ketones. Andreas Vogel (one of the inventors) from cLEcta…
