History

Biotechnology Studies Delft Leiden (BSDL)

The institute Biotechnology Studies Delft Leiden (BSDL) was founded in 1987 and has since then very successfully organised various types of postdoctoral education. BSDL was founded as a joint initiative in biotechnological post-graduate education of Delft University of Technology and Leiden University and is coordinated from the department of Biotechnology of Delft University of Technology.

BSDL has organised approximately 25 different courses over the course of more than 30 years.  Two of the early courses that were organised by BSDL (Microbial Physiology and Fermentation Technology and Downstream Processing) are still successfully running up until today.
