GET IN TOUCH WITH THE WORLD OF BIOTECH
Biotechnology is omnipresent in our days. Just thinking of a pharmacy, many products are produced biotechnologically. Measures against the climate change or the greenhouse effect as well as increasing efforts in the treatment of diseases and medical healthcare are unthinkable without biotech. But what is biotechnology and how does it work? Who are the people behind? How far does biotechnology concern my own enterprise or me as an individual? And maybe most important: how are the investments into biotechnological research used and what happens with the taxpayer’s money in public funded science?
The Austrian Centre of Industrial Biotechnology (acib) is active in R&D in a huge European and also global network and feels obliged to communicate its recent technological achievements and ongoing activities to its manifold stakeholder community. We are anxious to translate our scientific contents into generally understandable posts and, thus, make science more transparent and more tangible for a broader public. Science in the field of biotechnology can be fascinating; everybody needs it in a certain way – we invite you to get aware of what biotechnology can do for you!
