Our areas of work and offerings


Sustainable System Design

With a holistic perspective, we develop Biointelligent value creation systems that do not deplete resources from the environment but rather harness nature itself as a production system. We assist you with sustainability assessments for products, businesses, and regions.


Biointelligent Technologies

At the intersection of bio, information and production technology, we pioneer technologies for industrial production. Coupled with a systematic approach to innovation and technology management, we translate interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary innovations into practical applications.


Application Fields


Biointelligent on-demand production systems, as a cross-cutting technology, open up new economic sectors and transform value creation in the fields of nutrition, health, housing, consumption, and energy.
