Driven by the belief that our team at the Institute of Metagenomics and Microbial Technologies (IMMT) can make a great contribution to global health and wellbeing, we put all our knowledge, effort and time into obtaining new compounds from bacterial communities in nature, like enzymes.
Our solution enables over 6 orders of magnitude higher probability to get something new and bioactive. It uses application directed approach to obtain new molecules from information coded in the DNA/RNA molecules from bacteria present in native environments. This approach allows the highest probability to obtain new bioactive compounds needed for successful medical and industrial applications.
Our founders can make this possible due to their strong fundamental knowledge and experience in the functioning of microbial communities which was gained in 15 years of scientific and applicative research.
At the moment we are looking for strategic partners and investors to help us realize our vision of creating a novel platform for new, natural bioactive compounds.
The Institute of Metagenomics and Microbial Technologies (IMMT) receives funding to conduct a feasibility study for Combining microorganisms and renewable waste materials into environmentally friendly biotechnology applications.
Public Agency for Entrepreneurship, Internationalization, Foreign Investments and Technology (SPIRIT Slovenia) has recently granted 35.000,00 EUR to IMMT to condict a feasibility study of a coating technology ECOTOP. This great IMMT innovative technology enables to combine microorganisms and renewable organic waste materials to make new environmentally friendly coating solutions. The ECOTOP has high potentials being used in environmental remediation technologies, health and medicine.
Name of the operation: Structuring a framework for the transition to a circular economy and market adaptation of coating technology ECOTOP, the innovation of a company IMMT Ltd.
The investment was co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union under the European Regional Development Fund. Link to the website of the European Cohesion Policy in Slovenia: www.eu-skladi.si
