40 Years of Biotechnology at Forschungszentrum Jülich – A Success Story

Jülich, 28 September 2017 – Important discoveries, countless prizes, millions in funding, and successful spin-offs: there are many reasons for staging an official ceremony to celebrate the 40-year anniversary of the Institute of Biotechnology at Forschungszentrum Jülich. “Biotechnology is a key discipline for sustainable economic activity.
