The Galician Innovation Agency (GAIN) has prepared a series of videos to give visibility to the different types of biotechnology developed in Galician companies.
Biotechnology, according to the 1992 UN Convention on Biological Diversity, can be defined as "any technological application that uses biological systems and living organisms or their derivatives to create or modify products or processes for specific uses".
The use of colors to refer to different areas of biotechnology applications is now universal. Although colors have been created for many types of biotechnology, there are four particularly recognized ones: red biotechnology for biomedicine; green, for agriculture; white, for industrial uses; and blue for the marine environment.
Adrián Millán, CEO of Geneaqua, and Carla Salazar, Project Manager of Bioprana, talk to us in this video about blue and green biotechnology respectively.
