The mission of Biobased Value Circle is to establish a paradigm shift in the innovation process for biobased materials to accelerate the transition from a fossil-based to a biobased and circular economy. This is essential to tackle urgent issues in our society, such as climate change and plastic pollution. Biobased Value Circle aims to contribute to the development of the circular biobased economy, by removing barriers, such as: no common language and methodology for product development, taking into account social and environmental impacts. For more infomation about the program, please visit this web page.

BioTex is involved in two projects that aim to develop an aortic heart valve replacement by combining the principles of materials science and tissue engineering.

Project partners:

Technical Proteins NanoBiotechnology, S.L.

Spintex Engineering Ltd.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Marie Skolodowska-Curie grant agreement (MC European Industrial Doctorate, ID: 956621, Sept. 2020 - Sept. 2024)
