IBISBA in a nutshell

About Us


Accounting for the key status of industrial biotechnology, this area merits special focus and more common effort. Biocatalysis provides unique capability to convert complex biobased resources into a whole range of valuable products, but the full potential of industrial biotechnology as a manufacturing technology has not yet been reached. To achieve this, the R&I phases that convert concepts into pre-industrial processes must be accelerated and the resulting bioprocesses need to be increasingly robust, reliable and resilient.

Europe possesses a lot of research infrastructures that can be used to accelerate the development of innovative bioprocesses. Currently, these are mostly disconnected and thus unable to host the development of efficient R&I project pipelines. However, networking of individual infrastructure facilities is a viable way to overcome this problem, reduce duplication of research and cut investment, create synergy and stimulate cross-fertilisation among experts from different scientific theme areas.


IBISBA is a H2020-funded project that aims at building a European distributed network of research facilities to provide innovation services and accelerate translation of bioscience research into industrial applications. IBISBA provides access to a specialised research facilities for all industrial biotechnology professionals, including academic researchers, SMEs and large companies. The IBISBA network also offers subsidised access to best-in-class research infrastructure and will develop a variety of activities benefitting the wider scientific community. Focusing on e-services, IBISBA will develop a dedicated knowledge hub that will provide users with FAIR access to a wide variety of project assets, such as standard operating protocols (SOPs), publicly-accessible workflows, project deliverables and datasets.

Looking to the future, the overarching aim of IBISBA project is to create a European distributed research infrastructure that will provide a range of research support services to the Industrial Biotechnology community in Europe and worldwide.
