Research projects and collaborations

Active participation as SME partner in scientific projects is one of the core activities of Hycult Biotech’s R&D department. Our projects range from one-to-one collaborations to international consortia. We add value in research projects and consortia by combining strength of our scientific focus, industrial development skills as well as commercial experience.
