Industrielle Biotechnologie

Forschung, Entwicklung, Globalisierung und fairer Wettbewerb

Forschung und Entwicklung sind heute international und global. Akademische und institutionelle Forschung findet häufig in Zusammenarbeit mit ausländischen Partnern und bzw. Ressourcen statt. Unternehmen vermarkten Material und Wissen aus fernen Ländern oder bieten Erfindungen dort an. Wie kann es gelingen in dieser globalisierten Welt innovativ zu forschen und dennoch einen fairen Interessenausgleich und Wettbewerb zu gewährleisten? Beispiele aus Forschung und Wirtschaft werden hier präsentiert.

IP-Realität in der realen Bio-Welt

Prof. Dr. Andreas Graner IPK Gatersleben

Andreas Graner is the Managing Director of the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) Gatersleben and Professor of Plant Genetic Resources at the University of Halle.  Heading the Fedeal ex situ Genebank for Crop Plants, his research interests include understanding the genetic architecture of crop plant genomes at the structural and functional level, as it is deemed of critical importance for the knowledge-driven valorization of genetic diversity held in genebanks. He has been using genetic and genomic approaches to develop strategies for an improved conservation and utilization of plant genetic resources. In this context, he has employed barley (Hordeum vulgare) as a model plant for genome analysis at the structural and functional level, to study genome evolution, and to identify genes that underlie important agronomic traits such as seed quality and disease resistance. He is an elected member of the German Academy of Sciences LEOPOLDINA, and the Indian Academy of Agricultural Sciences.

Prof. Dr. Garabed Antranikian TU Hamburg-Harburg

Garabed Antranikian studied Biology at the American University in Beirut. At the University of Goettingen he completed his PhD in Microbiology in 1980 in the laboratory of Gerhard Gottschalk and qualified as a post-doctoral lecturer (Habilitation) in 1988. In 1989 he was appointed to a professorship in Microbiology at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) where he has been the head of the Institute of Technical Microbiology since 1990. From 1993 to 1999 he coordinated two EU network projects on extremophiles (Biotechnology of Extremophiles and Extremophiles as Cell Factories) with 39 and 58 partners from academia and industry. From 2000 to 2008 Prof. Antranikian coordinated two national network projects on biocatalysis supported by the German Environmental Foundation (DBU). He was the coordinator of the initiatives “Biokatalyse” with 60 partners and “InnovationsCentrum Biokatalyse ICBio” with 80 partners. From 2007 to 2015 he was the coordinator of the two network projects “Biocatalysis2021” and "Biorefinery2021" supported by the Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) including more than 50 partners.

He was president of the International Society for Extremophiles (2004-2010) and is chief editor of the international scientific journal Extremophiles since 2008. In 2004 he was awarded the most prestigious prize for environment protection by the president of the Federal Republic of Germany. He is member of the Academy of Sciences of Hamburg and Armenia and member of the Union of the German Academies of Sciences (acatech). He was vice president for academic affairs of TUHH from 2009 to 2011 and president of the university from 2011 to January 2018. Since February 2018 he is CEO of the “Center for Biobased Solutions” focusing on interdisciplinary projects on bioeconomy. Prof. Antranikian´s institute has more than 20 researchers including PhD candidates and Postdocs. The research group is involved in the following topics: biodiversity, bioinformatics, biochemistry, molecular biolopgy, metabolism, enzymology and industrial application of extremophilic bacteria and archaea living under extremes of temperature and pH.
