Global leaders in the fields of feedstock, conversion, equipment and end products are invited to join Biorizon's industry driven Shared Research Center that is based on the open innovation methodology.
Biorizon is operated by VITO of Belgium and TNO of The Netherlands, two Research and Technology organizations with a strong starting position in Biobased Technology. There is a special structure available for SME participation. Biorizon works together closely with a select group of academic organizations around the world. Shared Research Center Biorizon is located at the Green Chemistry Campus in Bergen op Zoom, The Netherlands, at the heart of industries between Antwerp and Rotterdam. Additionally Biorizon is operating research laboratories on the VITO premises in Mol, Belgium.
Biorizon is financed through contributions from the participating companies as well as National and European funding for Innovation. This enables a participating firm to have a significant multiplier effect on their R&D investment. Contracts will be signed over 3-year periods to ensure commitment to the program.
The participating organizations determine the roadmap and the deliverables of the Center on a bi-annual basis. Companies that decide to join at an early stage will get influence on research pathways, have a first mover advantage, get full insight in the business case and roadmaps and share the risks, while the investment at this point is considerably lower. Obviously, this enhances the opportunities of acquiring profitable business considerably.
