Introduction to Biomanufacturing 1 – Biomanufacturing and Biotech Principles

Introduction to Biomanufacturing 1

Do you want to gain a fundamental knowledge of current biotechnologies?

This two-day course provides you with the basic and state-of-the-art biomanufacturing methodologies, delivered by a diverse range of university teachers and industry guest lectures.

You will get a compact deep dive into today’s technologies, approaches, and stories, which shape life science and biomanufacturing in Denmark and abroad.

We start the course by introducing the basics of life science and reviewing the relevant terminology related to biomanufacturing. You will get a tour of our pilot plant, where you will experience bioreactors and process units. Furthermore, you will see and experience how manufacturing equipment works together.

During this course, you will be introduced to fundamental biomanufacturing topics, including:

  • Enzymes & proteins and biologics
  • Computational science and automation
  • Fermentation and biomanufacturing

We recommend that you enroll for ‘Introduction to Biomanufacturing 2’ when you have completed this course.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, you will have a basic understanding of industrial biotechnology and its application areas, the fundamentals of biomanufacturing, its terminology, methodologies, and strategies and be able to: 

  • Describe the basic concepts of biomanufacturing
  • Understand the standard tools and instruments used in the fermentation process
  • Discuss examples of industrial bioproduction
  • Discuss challenges in scale up and scale down of bioprocesses
  • Reflect on the use and potential of industry 4.0/digitalization in biomanufacturing
  • Recognize common problems and suggest solutions

Who should attend?

The course is especially beneficial for individuals who need to become more knowledgeable about the field of biological manufacturing and production, technology and process development and are curious about automation and data science in biotechnology.

This course targets professionals with background, skills, and/or experience in the following areas:

  • Natural scientists from a different field of expertise 
  • Engineering and production disciplines from design, planning, RD and operations
  • Postdocs and senior scientists who want to update themselves in a different science field 
  • Non-scientific professionals from administration, finance, sales or other non-technical disciplines, who are seeking to gain a thorough understanding of biotechnology and applied tools and methods.


Participants do not need to have specific knowledge in the field of biotechnology other than a basic high-school level understanding of natural sciences.
