IBISBA has joined forces with other leading European Research Infrastructures to carry out three ambitious projects that will revolutionise the food system, cancer research and biomanufacturing.


AgroSERV aims to provide access to innovative, customised, and integrated research services to European research communities to advance understanding of the risks and threats posed by global changes and enable the development of new agroecological practices while considering the socio-economic benefits to society and the sustainability of rural communities. The project follows the One-Health approach, particularly regarding threats and risks to agroecosystems and enhancing new agroecological practices and their socio-economic benefits. 

AgroSERV has received 15M€ through the Horizon Europe research and innovation programme and is expected to start by the end of 2022, led by the research infrastructure for Analysis and Experimentation on Ecosystems (AnaEE) and CNRS. Over the next five years, the consortium will work closely with more than 70 partners from the society, farmers, industry, citizens and policymakers toward sustainable and resilient agriculture by co-developing innovative agriculture practices that will significantly impact the food system’s future, preserving biodiversity and reducing the effects of agriculture on climate.

The French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE) will represent IBISBA.



canServ is a Horizon Europe-funded project that will unite over the next three years existing oncology and complementary research infrastructures in a coordinated network to accelerate translational research and offer cancer patients faster and easier access to solutions, products and personalised oncology clinical practice.

The project kicked off on 15 September 2022 in Brussels, where a team of 19 partners from leading European Research Infrastructure Consortia (EIRCs), Research Infrastructures, scientific societies, and patient associations came together to commit to establishing a unified platform of integrated unique oncology research services for the European and worldwide researcher community, thus supporting the EU Cancer Mission.

BBMRI-ERIC will lead the project by providing biobanking, biomolecular resources, expertise and services in ELSI, IT, Quality Management, Training, Outreach and Public Affairs.  

IBISBA, in turn, will be represented by the Wageningen University & Research (WUR), which will be valuable for Decision Support Systems (DSS), biomarkers, AI and training.

IBISBA will team up with ESFRI-landmark RIs such as Elixir, Mirri, BBMRI and DSMZ, innovative companies and several research groups in an ambitious 4-year work plan to encourage the adoption of advanced digital technologies in industrial biotechnology. These include innovative measurement devices for online monitoring, data management tools for data quality, open science, and AI learning to support bioprocess design.

BIOINDUSTRY4.0 will engage with a diverse community of stakeholders, especially industry, to co-design specific services to be well-aligned with stakeholder needs and thus be fit for use by RI users. In addition, BIOINDUSTRY 4.0 will train RI staff to deploy new services and ensure that users are well-acquainted with the opportunities offered by the project’s key developments.

The project has received 10M€ through the Horizon Europe framework programme and is expected to start on 2 January 2023.



IBISBA 1.0 kicked off in February 2018 and ended on May 31, 2022. The ultimate goal of the project was to build up a coordinated network of research facilities to offer integrated transnational R&D services available to the industrial biotechnology community in Europe and worldwide.

PREP-IBISBA represents the Preparatory Phase of EU-IBISBA, which was added to the ESFRI (European Strategic Forum on Research Infrastructure) Roadmap in September 2018.
The Preparatory Phase, launched in February 2020 in Paris, aims to be at the forefront of global industrial biotechnology innovation, delivering end-to-end bioprocess R&D services to researchers across Europe and beyond, playing a full role in education, offering an appropriate training environment for early career stage researchers and for more specific vocational training of industry professionals.
