acib for Public

acib (Austrian Center of Industrial Biotechnology) is a research centre that responds to pressing social issues such as the health crisis, the climate crisis, the shift from fossil energy sources to renewable resources, the preservation of ecosystems by avoiding harmful waste, and ensuring sufficient food to feed the world.

acib is aware that societal acceptance of novel technology is crucial. Therefore, we find innovative ways of science communication and dissemination to share our findings and make them understandable for everyone.
