Innovation Day 2017 Berlin

More than 300 innovative small and medium sized enterprises, research institutes and cooperation networks from all over Germany came together for the annual Innovation Day in Berlin on 18 May 2017.


They presented new products, processes and services, whose development was financed by the Federal Ministry for Economy and Energy (BMWi). 


About 1,800 guests had the opportunity to gain firsthand information about federal funding programs for innovation, make contact to companies and research performers, and converse with representatives from politics and legislation.


The PFI presented the biorefinery concept for a salt tolerant plant (Spartina maritima), in which multiple valuable products, such as lutein, sugar, and ethanol are produced. Dr. Michael Müller, project manager in the department of Biotechnology and Microbiology showed with tangible exhibits the whole valorization chain of Spartina maritima. The project aroused keen interest among the visitors.
