TUM Inter­na­tio­nal sup­port­ed local part­ner Amas­sence in stu­dy­ing the resour­ce poten­ti­al of the Ama­zon rain­fo­rest.
The first pil­lar of the col­la­bo­ra­ti­on invol­ved stu­dy­ing the medi­cinal effi­ca­cy of ende­mic plants.

In addi­ti­on to advi­sing on the pre­pa­ra­ti­on of inves­tor docu­ments, TUM Inter­na­tio­nal iden­ti­fied sui­ta­ble coope­ra­ti­on part­ners from busi­ness and aca­de­mia.

The deve­lo­p­ment pro­cess for phy­to­phar­maceu­ti­cal pro­ducts includes detail­ed ana­ly­sis of effi­ca­cy, review of the appr­oval pro­cess and glo­bal mar­ke­ting of the pro­ducts. The acti­vi­ties were sup­port­ed by the TU Munich with its out­stan­ding exper­ti­se in sys­tems bio­lo­gy and bio­tech­no­lo­gi­cal pro­ces­ses.

The second pil­lar invol­ved the deve­lo­p­ment of a Green Clus­ter in the Ama­zon in Ecua­dor. This is inten­ded to advan­ce socio-eco­no­mic deve­lo­p­ment at the com­mu­ni­ty level, streng­then regio­nal value crea­ti­on and trade with inter­na­tio­nal part­ners. The pro­ject focu­sed on soci­al­ly and envi­ron­men­tal­ly effec­ti­ve invest­ments. Intel­li­gent, modu­lar solu­ti­ons, qua­li­fi­ca­ti­on and trai­ning, and inno­va­ti­on pro­jects are desi­gned to mini­mi­ze the eco­lo­gi­cal foot­print while enab­ling the deve­lo­p­ment of high-qua­li­ty pro­ducts for inter­na­tio­nal mar­kets.
