We are a public-private research and technical validation institute. With academic and commercial parties we bundle our strengths in the development and application of biomedical materials and the production of biobased building blocks.

The Chemelot Institute for Science & Technology (InSciTe) is an institute that is knowledge driven and society oriented. We work together with different partners to develop sustainable biomedical materials and produce biobased building blocks. Our research starts with a proven concept, so that we already have a clear projection of the result. We are committed to technical validation. After the consortia is formed we focus on the valorization plan in which the market, the business, and the outcome is defined. We strive to have our projects ready at the phase of safety and regulations. For biomedical projects that means first-in-human clinical trials, while for biobased projects this involves the large-scale production of biobased building blocks.

In our Biomedical program we work closely together with our partners to develop biomedical solutions, by providing facilities, high end equipment and expertise. We call this the Biomedical Accelerator Matrix.

Our biomedical facility and the biobased multi-purpose pilot plant are located on the Brightlands Maastricht Health Campus and at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen, in an ecosystem of scientists, entrepreneurs, distributors and various large corporates. This enables us to work around the 4 E's, Entrepreneurship, Expertise, Experimentation and Education.

Making materials smarter by enabling top scientists and ambitious entrepreneurs to address the societal challenges and economic opportunities of sustainable healthcare and sustainable biobased production.
