Austrian Research Centre of Industrial Biotechnology (ACIB)
The Austrian Research Centre of Industrial Biotechnology (ACIB) bundles the expertise of key researchers from 10+ international universities in the multiple disciplines of industrial biotechnology and bioengineering, as well as attracting national and international biotechnological industry and international renowned research institutions as integrated project partners.
The centre wants to be the preferred partner for precompetitive research in industrial biotechnology, focused on biocatalysis, bioprocesses, enzymes and (pharmaceutical) protein production.
ACIB partners get access to innovative scientific concepts, condensed academic brain power and the broad methodological expertise required in order to develop unique bioprocesses and products.
ACIB’s ambitious research programme includes development of new microbial and mammalian expression systems and concepts, extended innovative applications of biocatalysis, improvement of bioprocesses and understanding bioproduction on a molecular and genome wide basis.
