Osuna group participated at the Collider OnCampus CAT 2022

One of the priorities of the IQCC is to strengthen the connections with industry, both nationally and internationally. Continuation of ongoing collaborative research efforts and initiating new joint projects are a high priority for the institute. Actually, there are several collaborations established with the private sector, some of them with the Osuna lab. In the last two months, Prof. Sílvia Osuna an ICREA Professor at the Institute of Computational Chemistry and Catalysis (IQCC) from the University of Girona together with two PhD students MSc. Guillem Casadevall, MSc. Cristina Duran and the project manager Dr. Teresa Corona had participated at the Collider OnCampus CAT 2022 from the Mobile World Capital Barcelona with the project GREENZYME. This project funded by the recent Prueba de Concepto call focuses on the computational design and/or optimization of enzymes for industrial processes. During the OnCampus the team interviewed with around 40 industries to explain their project and validate their product.

The Collider onCampus is a 7-week online entrepreneurship programme for university students and researchers based on the Lean Launchpad methodology by MWCaptial to connect scientific research with an entrepreneurial initiative. This method helps universities to assess the viability of the commercialization of new technologies through building entrepreneurial ventures.
