Vision & mission

The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability, DTU (CFB) aims to be a worldwide leader in cell factories design, construction and deployment and thus be a driver for change towards a biosustainable society. Hence, our vision, mission and objectives are as follows:

Vision 
The Development of sustainable lifestyles requires efficient bio-manufacturing methods for chemical compounds and protein-based products.

Mission 
The CFB will be a world leader in the design, construction and testing for cell factories by developing and perfecting foundational engineering approaches for bio-manufacturing.

Objectives 
1. Broaden the range of chemical compounds and protein-based products that can be bio-manufactured.

2. Drive the costs and time of making industrially meaningful cell factories down to less than $20 Million and less than 2 years .

3. Disseminate and translate its key research and development accomplishments to facilitate socio-economic development resulting from bio-manufacturing.

4. Develop and train the next generation of skilled personnel in various aspects of cell factories design.
