The Furoid Project
The mission of the FUROID initiative is to enable animal-free production of human hair, fur and wool.
The key innovation is the development of continuous and scalable technology, enabling the end of using living animals as a source of fur and wool and dominating the market by 2030. Specifically, there will be a focus on the development of engineered living fur. The fundamental innovation will be reached by using a combination of nanostructured scaffolds (RESPILON), hair/wool/fur organoids (GENEUS), and automated bio-fabrication technologies (BIOFABICS). The ambition of the project is to make significant steps to development products that will deliver a set of unprecedent properties:
