​Toulouse White Biotechnology (TWB)

Toulouse White Biotechnology (TWB) is a French pre-industrial demonstrator hosted by INRA (Institut National de Recherche Agronomique) that serves as a national and European focal point for industrial biotechnology by increasing collaboration between industrial companies and academic laboratories.

TWB's objective is to accelerate development and optimization of new bio-processes by providing scientific and technical assistance to industries and promoting market pull research. TWB facilitates access of its academic partners to main stakeholders in biotechnology including industrial players involved in relevant sectors (Biomass, Energy, Biomaterial, fine chemistry, cosmetics, etc).

The TWB consortium is an active component within the management structure of TWB, paying entry fees which are recycled into an annual research program (23 projects funded since 2012, €7.9M) supervised by the demonstrator.

TWB provides scientific as well as industrial networking, scientific monitoring, information on local, national and international calls and funding programs as well as specific services like ethic and environmental impact assessment.
