Knowledge Transfer

The research activity of CIBIO-InBIO has been strongly reinforced by multiple collaborations with private corporations and public administration, leading to impactful results. Partners can engage with CIBIO-InBIO in multiple ways, including, but not limited to:

Invited Chairs

The Invited Chairs Programme was established by Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) to strengthen links between research centres and business partners, involving co-funding by FCT (25%) and a private corporation (75%).

Invited Chairs are established for a period up to three years. This funding mechanism provides an ideal setting for the development of problem-driven research, in close collaboration with stakeholders, and thus the dissemination and exploitation of research and innovation with high commercial and/or societal value.

CIBIO has been one of the most successful research centres in Portugal regarding the creation of these invited chairs, which have involved until now 3 chairs with major Portuguese corporations (EDP, REN and REFER/IP), with several others being discussed at the moment.

Affiliates Program

The Affiliates Program is the privileged setting for collaborating, networking and learning with CIBIO-InBIO and in this way address challenges in the areas of environment, agriculture, biodiversity and nature conservation.

Joining the Affiliates Program is an attractive way to support our centre’s mission, while gaining access to networking and training activities, early access to information on our research, and facilitated access to use our facilities and technical services (sequencing, consulting, etc…), as well as a streamlined way of collaborating with us in a new research program of your choice.

The Affiliates Program is structured into four forms of commitment, that each provide a distinct set of benefits, and is open to different kind of entities, being particularly interesting for small and large commercial companies, operating in all fields, and for public administration.
