Biomanufacturing trainings - Univercells & EU Biotech Campus

This partnership aims to provide a dynamic learning environment for Belgian and international students and professionals while developing cutting-edge expertise to meet the evolving needs of the fast-growing life sciences industry.

Under this agreement, Univercells will provide the EU Biotech Campus with Ntensify™, its mRNA manufacturing technology developed by Quantoom Biosciences (Univercells’ affiliate company). This technology - which is a game-changer for the development and production of mRNA-based medicines - will serve as a practical training tool, simulating real-world biotech industry scenarios and giving trainees a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience and 4.0 skills. The training will take place in Belgium at the EU Biotech Campus. They will be given to local and international customers, students, professionals, job seekers as well as collaborators.

Wallonia is a renowned biotech Hub. Adding cutting-edge training to its offer will bring additional exposure to the Region from a different angle. We know how critical it is to find skilled people and to stay up to date in the life sciences sector. Offering professional training to young or unemployed people will increase their hiring potential and serve biotech and pharma companies looking for talented individuals in Belgium and abroad. We are excited to be part of this project and we look forward to seeing the campus opening its doors next year”, said Hugues Bultot, CEO of Univercells.

Fostering a virtuous circle of learning

The EU Biotech Campus is a new state-of-the-art and multi-operator training center for the health & biotech sector located in the Brussels South Charleroi Biopark (Belgium). The Campus provides specialized courses tailored to the fast-evolving needs of the Life Sciences industry. The first pilot training programs focused on 4.0 skills for biomanufacturing, maintenance and supply chain activities. Through this strategic collaboration with a global leader such as Univercells - which is supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation - the EU Biotech Campus positions Wallonia at the forefront of next-generation biomanufacturing training programs for both Belgian and international. It also fosters a virtuous circle of practical learning meant to fuel the market with the highly-skilled profiles that companies are looking for to grow.

We are extremely proud that the EU Biotech Campus can showcase such technology, invented, developed, and produced in Belgium. Together, we look forward to driving innovation, fostering talent development, and contributing to the continued success and growth of the life sciences sector”, commented Frédéric Druck, Chairman EU Biotech Campus.
