Personal Statement

"The next Kondratiev-cycle after digitalization is biologization (using industrial biotechnology and circular economy) – leading to performance products addressing our needs and well-being on a natural and sustainable basis.

AMSilk’s silk proteins are a “best in class” example: They are already on the market and sold as Silkgel for cosmetics. Other products are Biosteel®-fibers and Silkcoating for medical devices, among others. "
