IBC Finland works in collaboration with both national and international organizations in the Industrial Biotechnology and Bioeconomy field. Our collaboration partners are:






The Austrian Research Centre of Industrial Biotechnology (ACIB) bundles the expertise of key researchers from seven Austrian 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, enzymes and (pharmaceutical) protein production.

ACIB’s ambitious research programme includes development of new microbial and mammalian expression systems and concepts, extended innovative applications of biocatalysis, and understanding bioproduction on a molecular and genome wide basis.




The Centre of Excellence for Biocatalysis, Biotransformations and Biocatalytic Manufacture (CoEBio3) is the UK’s organisation dedicated to providing a world-class scientific environment in which the necessary research and development can be carried out to create new biocatalyst-based processes to meet the changing needs of industry in the next 10-20 years. CoEBio3 trains graduate and postdoctoral scientists such that they possess the necessary combination of skills in chemistry, biology and engineering needed to support the challenges of the future in Industrial Biotechnology.

Finnish Bioeconomy Cluster FIBIC is one of six Strategic Centers for science, technology and innovation in Finland. The aim of FIBIC is to turn science and technology into sustainable bio-based solutions.

Research programs are the core FIBIC’s activities. Their on-going research programs are related to the development of intelligent and resource-efficient processes, future biorefineries and bioenergy solutions.




Finnish Bioindustries FIB is Finland's biotechnology industry association, established in 1997. It is a private, independent non-profit organisation. Finnish Bioindustries promotes national and international networking and information transfer between the different players in the field.

Member companies represent  all life science areas, from health care and functional food to biomaterials. Finnish Bioindustries participates in national and international technology programs, actively exploits finance systems and promotes technology transfer.





TOULOUSE WHITE BIOTECHNOLOGY (TWB) is a pre-industrial demonstrator that designs and creates biological tools (enzymes, microorganisms, microbial consortia, etc.), thus opening new avenues for the production of chemical molecules (synthons), biopolymers, biomaterials and biofuels based on the use of renewable carbon.
