Blue and green biotechnologies
Brittany has established a unique position in both so-called blue and green biotechnologies. Blue refers to the the sea’s resources, and green to the fruit of agriculture. The Breton biotechnology sector is thus based on the development of marine resources and products of the food industry (livestock and crops).
This is built on historical foundations set in motion by exploiting the potential of the convergence of regional expertise in digital and health technologies.
An active network
To its marine, agricultural and food resources, Brittany has added its technological expertise and academic potential establishing itself as a major player in biotechnology, in both France and Europe.
Between groups, SMEs and startups, an active network has developed, led by the Capbiotek innovation and technology transfer centre.
