SFI IB is a research-based innovation centre comprised of 4 leading national research organisations, 14 Industry partners and one industry cluster.
Together, the partners have leading infrastructure platforms and competence on key areas of national interest within Industrial Biotechnology.
By joining these capacities in one national centre, we will secure a stronger orchestration of Norwegian R&D&I within the main Innovation domains the centre will focus on.
The SFI has five innovation domains and eight research domains. The work is divided into seven sub-projects. Four cross cutting activities span the centre activity.
