The 3rd progress meeting in online form!
Meeting face-to-face in corona times? Why not?
We held our progress meeting over 2 half days (18.-19. May) online and it was a complete success. Our time was used very efficiently and not only we managed only little technical hurdles together, but even we shared some good real laughs.
The core topics on the agenda were the progress in computational enzyme engineering, process development and in reductive catalytic fractionation. Computational enzyme engineering was presented by Zymvol, University of Groningen, ITQB and Uni Pavia. The process development progress in the production of the first product, FDCA, was reported by BBEPP with promising results. KU Leuven presented the current results of RCF and the optimization as well as scale up thereof.
Although we were all efficient and satisfied with the exchange on the technical work, we are also looking forward to deepening our talks again face-to-face in person. Hopefully for the next meeting. In the meantime the SMARTBOX Team wishes that you all stay safe and healthy!
