The team of the university successfully awarded JeNaCell twice

The State Secretary at the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi), Dr. Bernhard Heitzer, awarded the founding team of the Friedrichs-Schiller-University of Jena to the second investment forum "Innovations suchen Kapital" in Berlin on 15 March. The team JeNaCell receives the 100th EXIST research funding transfer, which has been approved by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology within the framework of "EXIST - Business Start-ups from Science". JeNaCell researches the production of bacterially synthesized nanocellulose, which is suitable as a basic material for wound care, for cosmetic products and for the production of high-quality technical membranes. With the help of EXIST research transfer, a continuous and automated production process developed at the University of Jena is developed up to production maturity.

State Secretary Heitzer: "Excellent research is the basis for new technologies and innovative products, but there are still too many exciting ideas at German universities and research institutes that could become the basis for a new company."
