Abstract
The urgent transition to a more sustainable and biobased economy drives the growing interest in (mycelium) biomaterials which can grow with minimal energy from various feedstocks and are fully biodegradable. Despite the worldwide emergence of startup companies, real-world applications are limited, and a market breakthrough has not occurred yet, partially due to a lack of scientific insights. This project aims to build a fundamental knowledge platform focusing on the interplay between feedstock types, fermentation process parameters, and biological and material characteristics. Further, the project expands the portfolio of material types (including engineered materials) via cocultivation strategies. Finally, this project also explores and evaluates the bioethical implications of biomaterial applications in our daily lives. This multifaceted and interdisciplinary project offers a new way to interface academia with society and opens the public debate about the application of biomaterials.
