Kytos @ UGent

About

With the support of Ghent University’s industrial research fund, the KYTOS team is developing market-ready technologies for managing microbial components of industrial processes worldwide. Over the course of the next two years, we will be developing our core product offering through co-creation projects with industrial partners in the water, aquaculture and fermentation sectors.

Throughout our journey, we will share our major milestones and events on this landing page. If you are interested in establishing a co-creation project with KYTOS, or would like to receive frequent updates on our progress, do not hesitate to contact us using the contact form below.
