The mission and ambition of Enviromics is to be a unique integrated (bio)technology platform for the development of new nature-based solutions for environmental challenges through dynamic interactions with private industry, public actors and academia. Environmental challenges are approached in an innovative way, from a broad ecological perspective, and via interdisciplinary top level research across biology, (bio)chemistry, (bio)engineering and social sciences. Enviromics benefits from the unique combination of extensive knowhow on (microbial) ecology and ecotoxicology, advanced sensing and detection technologies, sustainable product development and sociological analyses of innovation adoption and risk assessment.
Enviromics works in close cooperation with the private sector for the implementation of technologies and with authorities that provide the regulatory framework within which we operate. Key areas are the assessment and improvement of environmental quality standards, detection of pharmaceuticals and illicit drugs, probiotic development and remediation of global change-related events (e.g. carbon capture). In all we do, we are always driven by a clear-cut research, industrial or societal challenge.
