Industrial Biotechnology Innovation and Synthetic Biology Accelerator Preparatory Phase

Project Details


The Industrial Biotechnology Innovation and Synthetic Biology Accelerator (EU IBISBA) supports research in industrial biotechnology by providing access to first-class facilities for all industrial biotechnology professionals. In 2018, this European distributed research infrastructure concept was incorporated into the road map of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures. An immediate consequence was the entry of the project into the preparation phase. The aim of the EU-funded follow-up project PREP-IBISBA is to create the conditions for EU-IBISBA to become a fully operational European research infrastructure in the coming years. The project will help EU-IBISBA define a business model, establish a long-range financial plan and identify suitable legal frameworks to support its operation.
