Introduction to Biomanufacturing 2

Introduction to Biomanufacturing 2

Have you have ever wondered how to develop a process, what methods you can use to influence the economic outcome, or what it takes to bring a technology from laboratory to production scale?

In this course, you will be exposed to the challenges and understanding of sustainability and you will work with questions, like if biomanufacturing is a sustainable option.

The course follows our introductory level Biomanufacturing 1 course, and provides a deep dive into key topics related to biomanufacturing.

During this course, you will be introduced to:

  • Synthetic biology
  • Fermentation and biomanufacturing
  • Process and technology development
  • Assessment of sustainability and economics.

This course is divided into four half-day sessions, delivered by a range of diverse university teachers.

Whether you are an ‘Introduction to Biomanufacturing 1‘ alumnus or an established professional who comes from a related field of science, education or industrial background, you will gain a deep understanding of the advanced aspects of biotechnologies.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, you will have an advanced understanding of industrial and biomanufacturing practices and be able to:

  • Understand the tools and methodologies in today’s synthetic biology
  • Reflect on the use and potential of industry 4.0/digitalization in biomanufacturing
  • Describe advanced concepts of biomanufacturing and Fermentation
  • Discuss challenges in scale up and scale down of bioprocesses
  • Reflect on strategies for process optimization in ‘upstream’ and ‘downstream’
  • Understand methodologies and techniques for Sustainability and Techno-Economic Assessment and their influence on process development
  • Reflect on strategies for process optimization
  • Recognize common problems and suggest solutions.

Who should attend?

Our ‘Introduction to Biomanufacturing 2’ course is targeting experienced professionals who want to improve their knowledge in the fields of applied synthetic biology, biological manufacturing and production, technology and process development as well as assessment of sustainable and economic performance.

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 need to have an advanced knowledge in the field of biotechnology or must have completed the course ‘Introduction to Biomanufacturing 1’.
