The company GEN-TREND Ltd. was founded in 2002 by a group of investors, financial experts and biotechnology and molecular biology specialists in order to start a private company tightly co-operating with the public research sector. The connection of private and public research capacities was initialized in order to build a company using principles of know-how transfer from the public research to private applied sphere. The result of our efforts is a flourishing biotechnological company offering its own prime quality products and services.
Since 2008 till 2012 the GEN-TREND laboratories were located in the building of South-Bohemian Science-Technology Park. This environment allowed us to start co-operation with experts not only from the University of South Bohemia and Biology Centre of the Academy of Science of the Czech Republic. New technological processes (e.g. production of biologically active compounds, development of new diagnostic processes in human and veterinary medicine) are carried out using benefits of this connection.
Since 2012 the laboratories are based in the Innovation centre of ENVISAN-GEM a.s. a partner company co-operating on common research and development projects. The already established collaborations continue and new partnerships like with Biotechnological Centre of Faculty of Agriculture, University of South Bohemia were started.
The co-operations are based on "joint venture" principles in order to develop a long-term and strong partnerships with public research institutions. Crucial feature of joint venture is balanced satisfaction of the interests of both parties, because the partnership may be successful only in case, both partners feel they have equally strong positions. GEN-TREND Ltd. is currently using and expanding its team of hihgly qualified experts, implementing the marketing goals of the company.
