More information



  • We appre­ci­ate our mem­ber­ship at IBB and know that it is of great value to 4GENE. Through the net­work, we receive import­ant inform­a­tion con­cern­ing events and fund­ing oppor­tun­it­ies, we are put into con­tact with oth­er busi­nesses and estab­lish cooper­a­tion pos­sib­il­it­ies. We also get ideas as well as tan­gible and very com­pet­ent sup­port when apply­ing for pro­jects. Sev­er­al of our employ­ees are in touch with the IBB-team, and they all appre­ci­ate it tech­nic­ally and personally.

  • Fraunhofer UMSICHT has been in con­tact with IBB for many years now. Thanks to the cooper­a­tion net­work BioPlastic”, we estab­lished sev­er­al pro­jects with new part­ners and put for­ward the devel­op­ment of sus­tain­able poly­mers. We appre­ci­ate the worth­while pro­ject and con­nec­tion offers and par­tic­u­larly the com­mu­nic­a­tion ser­vices by Pro­fess­or Zorbas and his team. We gladly employ IBB in our pro­jects for sci­ence and out­put com­mu­nic­a­tion for experts and the public.

  • Espe­cially as being a start-up, we very much appre­ci­ate the effi­cient and straight­for­ward com­mu­nic­a­tion with IBB Net­zwerk GmbH. This way, we are cer­tain that our requests are always pro­cessed swiftly and could receive sup­port with fund­ing applic­a­tions at short notice. Through the net­work, we gain import­ant inform­a­tion con­cern­ing cur­rent fund­ing oppor­tun­it­ies includ­ing notes on cooper­a­tion pos­sib­il­it­ies and invit­a­tions to IBB’s expert and polit­ic­al events.

  • Elec­tro­chaea has been a mem­ber of IBB Net­zwerk GmbH since 2015 and is an act­ive mem­ber of the asso­ci­ation Förderver­ein Indus­tri­elle Bio­tech­no­lo­gie Bay­ern e.V. Dur­ing this time, we already imple­men­ted sev­er­al R&D‑projects, sup­por­ted greatly by IBB: from the choice of appro­pri­ate fund­ing pro­grams, com­mu­nic­a­tion with respect­ive lead part­ners to the fund­ing applic­a­tion. We gladly accept IBB’s mul­ti­fac­ted ser­vices exceed­ing the sup­port of fund­ing applic­a­tions and includ­ing the sup­port regard­ing press releases and the organ­iz­a­tion of expert and polit­ic­al events. Thanks to our mem­ber­ship, we estab­lished many valu­able con­tacts to oth­er stake­hold­ers in bio­tech­no­logy and polit­ics, aim­ing to put for­ward our busi­ness cooper­a­tion endeavors — and a sus­tain­able eco­nomy in Ger­many in gen­er­al. Cooper­at­ing with the entire IBB team is extremely pleas­ant, pro­duct­ive and espe­cially successful.
