Federal and State Governments Consolidate Bioeconomy Research

Aachen/Jülich, 27 May 2013 – A favourable outcome for the Bioeconomy Science Center (BioSC), which is the largest research cluster for a sustainable bioeconomy in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) involving RWTH Aachen University, Forschungszentrum Jülich and the universities in Bonn and Düsseldorf: it has been granted more than € 58 million to explore ways of establishing an integrated bioeconomy over the next ten years. A joint goal of the federal republic of Germany and the federal state of NRW is research for a sustainable bioeconomy and its implementation. NRW Science Minister Svenja Schulze and Thomas Rachel, Member of the Bundestag and Parliamentary State Secretary to the Federal Minister of Education and Research, have now agreed that Jülich biotechnology will be permanently incorporated into the Helmholtz Association, and that NRW will fund a unique European project on the integrated bioeconomy at BioSC.
