It brings together several European platforms (14 infrastructures from 9 European countries) covering the entire research process from the design phases to production. IBISBA coordinates the action of these platforms in order to remove the biological and technological bottlenecks encountered in industrial processes development. IBISBA 1.0 has received a global grant of €5 million from the European Commission, of which €1.4 million has been allocated to the TNA calls for tender.
