Here you can find completed projects involving participation of BIOPRO.

BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg was a partner

The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts supported the establishment of a telemedicine coordination office in Baden-Württemberg with funds totalling 600,000 euros (“Central Innovative Telemedicine-assisted Healthcare Network in Baden-Württemberg”). The coordination office was run by Prof. Dr. Gerald Weisser. BIOPRO was a partner of the Telemedicine Baden-Württemberg network.

Team Bioeconomy

Biogas, microalgae and lignocellulose are the three most important fields in Baden-Württemberg's bioeconomy research strategy. The material use of lignocellulose-containing biomass is being investigated in a pilot plant at the University of Hohenheim. BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg is working in cooperation with the University of Hohenheim and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).

Bioeconomy and Digitalisation

Combining the two heavyweights bioeconomy and digitization - that was the aim of the 'Smart SMEs' project. The project focused especially on natural fiber-based value chains which should be analyzed for opportunities and obstacles of digitization. To achieve this goal, BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg worked together with partners from Italy, Lower Austria, Slovenia and Switzerland in an international consortium.

Team Bioeconomy

The Biopolymers/Biomaterials cluster brings together around 150 companies and 40 research institutions from all over Germany with the aim of developing plastics based on renewable raw materials. Various disciplines such as biotechnology, chemical engineering, polymer chemistry and plastics technology work together in the cluster.

Interreg Alpine Space Programme

The bioeconomy is identified as a strategically important future sector in the EU Strategy for the Alpine Region. BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg GmbH is involved in several projects to promote bioeconomic transformation in the Alpine region that are co-financed by the EU. The AlpLinkBioEco project aimed, amongst other things, to tap into high-quality, innovative and sustainable value-added potentials in biobased production networks.

Alpine Region Preparatory Action Fund (ARPAF)

In the EU's Alpine Space Strategy, the bioeconomy is identified as a strategically important future sector. BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg GmbH is involved in several projects co-financed by the EU with the aim of promoting the bioeconomic transformation in the Alpine region.

Interreg Alpine Space Programme

The bioeconomy and the healthcare sector are seen as strategically important future sectors in the EU's Strategy for the Alpine Region. BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg GmbH is the lead partner in the EU-cofinanced ARDIA-Net project, which got underway in October 2019. The aim of the project is to develop a transnational funding programme for research, development and innovation (R&I) for regional and local authorities in the Alpine macroregion. The project is aimed at establishing the legal framework as well as the blueprints for managing the programme.

Interreg Danube Programme

The Interreg Danube Translational Programme’s ”DanuBioValNet” project aims to establish new biobased value chains. Under the leadership of BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg GmbH, 17 partners from the Danube region met on 1st January 2017 to pave the ground for transnational collaboration in the biobased industry. Regional cluster organisations are expected to drive the change from a fossil fuel-based industry to a biobased industry forward and will be given intensive training to help them initiate transnational networking in this sector.


The ‘GoDanuBio’ project is part of the Interreg Danube Transnational Programme, and its goal is to promote regional development in the Danube region through the bioeconomy. The ‘GoDanuBio’ project is designed to increase the attractiveness of rural areas in the Danube region, create new jobs, and thereby prevent the migration of young people to the cities. Demographic change is to be managed at the regional and local level through participatory governance and citizen involvement. For this purpose, BIOPRO is working in cooperation with 19 project partners and 7 associated partners from 10 countries in the Danube region.

Support in the implementation of the MDR & IVDR

The EU regulations on Medical Devices (MDR) and In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices (IVDR) came into force in May 2017 and became fully effective on 26th May 2021 and 26th May 2022, respectively. The EU’s main objective is to ensure the safety of these products for users. This results in new requirements for the industry, which pose major challenges for micro and small companies in particular, but also for some medium-sized companies.

Danube Alliance for SME Competitiveness

Intelligent services and sustainable supply chains for the Danube region - BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg wass working on this together with other partners in the Danube Alliance for SME Competitiveness project. The goal was to increase the resilience and competitiveness of supply chains involving small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Danube region.

Digitalisation of the healthcare system

Installing the next digital generation of computed tomography at various Baden-Württemberg medical centres (PC3).
