North Carolina State University’s Golden LEAF Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center (BTEC) and Strasbourg University’s European Aseptic and Sterile Environment Training Center (EASE), developed with Alsace Biovalley, have now joined forces to create BTEC International. This new organization will provide biomanufacturing training, education and process services in the United States and Europe. BTEC International will also be a knowledge hub of regulatory affairs expertise pertaining to both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency. In addition, BTEC International will be a vehicle to connect businesses and biomanufactuers to one another in Research Triangle Park, N.C., and the vibrant bioindustrial sector in Alsace and the surrounding area in France, Germany and Switzerland.

BTEC International will develop and provide hands-on biomanufacturing training and regulatory affairs courses at the Golden LEAF BTEC facility in Raleigh, N.C., and at the EASE headquarters in Strasbourg, France. The initiative will also work with researchers, corporations, governments and international organizations from both regions to develop and test innovative technologies to advance the biomanufacturing industry.
