Instituto de Biologia Experimental e Tecnológica (IBET)

Instituto de Biologia Experimental e Tecnológica is a private non-profit institution created in 1989 to integrate and strengthen biological and biochemical knowledge from its academic and industrial partners into technology and transfer it into economic wealth and job creation. IBET brings together, as partners and collaborators, private companies and public institutions, creating a critical mass of competencies for product and process development. In this unit, companies have access to fermentation and downstream processing skills and equipment.

In November 2000, IBET signed a contract with the Ministry of Science and Technology of Portugal that established IBET as an Associate Laboratory, the first in Portugal devoted to biologically active molecules, molecular medicine, developmental biology, biological risk and plant biotechnology.
