Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


In biotechnology research, activities are conducted via two different types of projects: N-projects and T-projects. T-projects, larger targeted projects, are aimed at bottlenecks resulting from structural or scale constraints. This report is concerned with the T-project on the characterisation of lipases for industrial applications, in particular the three-dimensional structure and catalytic mechanism. The background of the project is described and the origin and aim are outlined. The proposals selected for contract negotiation and subsequent funding in this area are presented in a table, and the development of the Lipase Industrial Platform is briefly described.
