The general objective of the CULTUREDMEAT project is to investigate cultured meat produced by cellular agriculture that together with the development of healthy fats and functional ingredients allow the obtaining of meat products that help to prevent dyslipidemia (reduce the “bad cholesterol” levels) and colon cancer.
DMC Research Center is participating in the Spanish project CULTUREDMEAT, the best-valued R&D project in all areas of the CDTI MISSIONS call, one of the most competitive calls of the Spanish Ministry of Innovation.
CULTUREDMEAT was borned thanks to the cooperation of biotechnology companies specialized in nutrition and production technologies of the agrifood sector in Spain, such as Argal (project leader), Biotech Foods, Martínez Somalo, DMC Research, BDI Biotech, Neoalgae, BTSA and Agrowingdata. The consortium is complemented by 10 research centers and Universities (CTIC CITA, University of Oviedo, Autonomous University of Madrid – FUAM, TECNALIA, Barcelona Science Park, University of Seville – FIUS, VICOMTECH, University of Granada, BIODONOSTIA and CIC BIOMAGUNE). Finally, ZABALA Innovation consulting leads the management of the project.
The project has been funded by the Spanish CDTI (Center for Industrial Technological Development) – through the call “Science and Innovation Missions 2019”, and is co-financed with the European Regional Development Fund -ERDF- through its Multiregional Operational Program of Spain 2014-2020 and has a total budget of € 5,205,858.00 and a grant of € 3,707,288.59.
