Continuing the successful collaboration with DTU-based Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability, Innovayt helped the Center securing a grant of 6.3 million EUR for the DD-DeCaF project - Bioinformatics Services for Data Driven Design of Cell Factories and Communities from EU Horizon 2020 program.

The end result of this collaborative project will be a web-based software platform (DeCaF) that will allow biotech companies to design and engineer cell factories faster than is currently possible. Advanced modeling technologies will allow the conversion of diverse high-throughput datasets to specific suggested cell factory designs that can be implemented experimentally.

The project Coordinator Markus Herrgard from DTU comments on Innovayt’s work: “Innovayt’s contribution was essential for structuring and fine tuning the proposal in order to succeed in the highly competitive Horizon 2020 application process. Their contribution was especially valuable for developing the business case for DD-DeCaF, which allowed project partners to concentrate more on scientific and technical content of the proposal.”
