Enzymes for Industrial Applications



The Vereinigung Deutscher Biotechnologie-Unternehmen (Association of German Biotechnology Companies) is a union of companies and institutions involved in biotechnology and related sectors. Our members come from the fields of biotechnology, pharmaceutical technology, bioinformatics, diagnostics, medical devices and laboratory technology. VBU is a platform for cooperation, communication and information.

Founded in 1996, VBU was the first organisation for biotechnology companies in Germany and is integrated in the Biotechnology Section of DECHEMA. VBU members are automatically members of DECHEMA.

What we do

VBU is a catalyst for the transfer of research results into competitive products and services. VBU represents a cross-sectoral network, assisting its members in seeking and finding cooperation partners in all areas of the life sciences both on a national and an international scale.

VBU brings people together, at numerous events on hot topics and by the web-based Life Sciences database G2C - Gate to Cooperation. G2C provides a wealth of opportunities for communication and cooperation on a national and international scale. Additionally, VBU cooperates closely with other national and international organisations in the areas of biotechnology, pharmaceutical technology, diagnostics and also knowledge and technology transfer.
