Scientific Partners

The acib closely cooperates with its scientific partners that provide key researchers and resources. By close networking with the scientific partners it is guaranteed that acib is always at the front line of top-level research. Our scientific partners are institutions / departments of the following universities and colleges:

The AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, Austria’s largest non-university research institute, is among the European research institutes a specialist in the key infrastructure issues of the future.As an Ingenious Partner to industry and public institutions, AIT is already researching and developing the technologies, methods and tools of tomorrow ? paving the way for the innovations of the day after tomorrow.

Graz University of Technology is the scientific home of seven faculties and almost 10.000 students. Competing on a world scale with other key institutions, Graz University of Technology pursues top teaching and research in the fields of the engineering sciences and the technical-natural sciences.

TU Graz contributes to ACIB, above all, with expertise human- and biotechnology, biomolecular engineering, bioprocess technology, biocatalysis and bioanalytics,  genomics and bioinformatics and biomedical and biomechanical Engineering

Together with the education of health professionals and first class patient care, scientific research as the basis for progress in medicine is one focus of the Medical Universty of Graz. They deal with the investigation of physiological processes, decoding of genes and their functions, development of new surgery techniques and the testing of pharmaceuticals for new medicaments.

The Core Facility of Mass Spectrometry/Proteomics at the Center of Medical Research (ZMF) contributes to ACIB by providing knowledge, experience and infrastructure in the field of functional proteomics and high end protein analytics.

Ignacy Lukasiewicz Rzeszow University of Technology is a state-funded academic university that makes up a part of the Polish national education and science system.
Rzeszow University of Technology offers its students a wide variety of programs and courses. It also undertakes research and scientific projects in the following specialized fields of the applied sciences: engineering, mathematics, physics, economics, as well as the chemical and biological sciences.

The TU Hamburg-Harburg is a competitive, entrepreneurially-minded university with high performance and quality that feels commited to the Humboldtian principles and is oriented internationally.

The main research field of the group of Andreas Liese covers technical and fundamental aspects of the application of whole cells and isolated enzymes in biocatalysis and environmental biotechnology.

The University of Pavia is one of the oldest universities in Europe. An edict issued by King Lotharius quotes a higher education institution in Pavia as already established in 825. Today Pavia is a Research University, offering a wide variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary teaching organized in nine faculties, among them natural sciences as mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology. The main research interst of Andrea Mattevi’s group is  is the investigation of medically and biocatalytically relevant enzymes with interesting chemical properties.

The Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona was founded in 1968. The founders aimed to establish four principles of autonomy: freedom to select teaching staff, admission available to all students (but with a limited number), freedom to create its own study plans and freedom to administrate the University’s capital. It is therefore a young university, but in its short history it has moved forward at a rapid pace.

The main UAB campus, in Cerdanyola del Vallès, is home to most of our faculties, departments, institutes and services, as well as to a significant scientific and technological cluster. The Bellaterra campus is also home to the UAB Research Park, a group of centres and specific partner research institutes created to meet the specific needs for important fields of research.

The University of Applied Sciences, FH Campus Wien offers a variety of Bachelor-, Master- and Diploma- degree programmes in the fields of Technology and Management, Health and Social Work.

The School of Bioengineering, as part of the Department of Life Sciences  participates in ACIB in the supply of its technology platforms and collaboration networks that are focused on the field of metabolic engineering and metabolic flux analysis. Expertise with strain improvement and high throughput screening methods are a major contribution to ACIB.

University of Graz Styria, Austria

The University of Graz is an institution with a focus on natural sciences, society, social and economic science. The university is characterised by a high professional and social competence in education, research, applied science and internationalisation.

The participating departments for Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences are strongly associated to the corresponding activities at the sister University of Technology. This unique setup provides an extremely strong bond of complimentary research activities for ACIB.

The University of Innsbruck has a long history of experience in modern molecular genetics techniques. The Institute of Biochemistry was a valuable partner in most government initiatives to promote and establish molecular biology methods in Austria.

It contributes to ACIB with its competences and its networks and technology platforms, which were established in the field of molecular genetics and protein biochemistry over the last few decades. Its expertise with expression systems are a major contribution to ACIB.

The University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU), has over 30 years of experience in Life Sciences through its activities in the fields of agriculture, forestry and food science.

BOKU contributes to ACIB with its core competences, networks and technology platforms which were established in the field of biotechnology and its long-term expertise with the most important expression systems for the production of complex recombinant molecules such as proteins, glyco-conjugates and nucleic acids

The interaction between basic research and various fields of engineering sciences within the Vienna University of Technology (TUW), as well as in the framework of cooperative projects with other universities and research institutes, facilitate development work in almost all areas of technology.

The Institutes of Sensor and Actuator systems and  of Chemical Engineering  participate in ACIB, they represent a broad spectrum of expertise in the fields of engineering and sensor technology.

University of Ljubljana

The University of Ljubljana implements and promotes basic, applied and developmental research and is pursuing excellence and the highest quality as well as the highest ethical criteria in all scientific fields and art.
Based on its own, Slovenian, and foreign research, the University of Ljubljana (UL) educates critical thinking top scientists, artists, and professionals qualified for leading sustainable development, taking into account the tradition of the European Enlightenment and Humanism and with regard to human rights. Special attention is dedicated to developing talents.

“Drug discovery and development is a team sport, with moments of brilliant thinking and hours of painstakingly detailed work and therefore we have to intensify our partnership with leading academic centers.” (Jean-Pierre Garnier, CEO of GlaxoSmithKline, May 2008)

The RCPE Research Center Pharmaceutical Engineering was founded on June 26th, 2008 and is funded via the Austrian COMET K1-Programme. The research center is collaborating with more than 100 partners in industry and science. As a pre-competitive and business-linked research institute, the RCPE makes a contribution to the constant progress in the area of pharmaceutical development and engineering as well as in related areas.

The CeBiTec at the University Bielefeld is a central scientific institution dedicated to interdisciplinary research in life sciences. The CeBiTec houses the technology platform Genomics and the Bioinformatics Resource Facility. Specifically, the CeBiTec will perform sequence analysis and annotation of the Chinese Hamster genome sequence.

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory is an intergovernmental organization specializing in basic research in the life sciences with 20 member states, one prospect and one associate member state. Research at EMBL is conducted by approximately 85 independent groups covering the spectrum of molecular biology.

University of Vienna
