The BIO-FARMA Project
The project is part of the action 2.1 Innovative Economy Operational Program "Development of centers of high research potential," whose aim is to develop the infrastructure of scientific units in institutions with high research potential, allowing to achieve high-quality research.
The main objective of the project is to increase the competitiveness of the members of the consortium BIO-FARM in the area of biotechnology, bioengineering and bioinformatics, through the achievement of specific objectives, such as:
- increase the share of funds for the purchase of research equipment-related environmental measures in the total amount for the purchase of equipment R & D
- Increase the number of research, development and targeted projects
- Increase the number of internatioonal projects
- Increase the number of research units benefiting from the scientific infrastructure of the consortium
- increase the number of people who have undergone specialized training
- increasing number of researchers with access to modern infrastructure
- increasing the number of students having access to modern infrastructure
The object of the project is to create in the southern Polish region of integrated network and work closely specialist research laboratories on the basis of units already have extensive experience in biotechnology, bioengineering and bioinformatics. Project includes the construction project carried out in Gliwice, the modernization of the building in Zabrze-Rokitnica and purchase of research equipment for the needs created, as well as the existing laboratories, which will allow members of the consortium to conduct high quality research in these areas. Implementation of the project will achieve the critical mass necessary equipment resources to conduct large, including international and multidisciplinary research projects. The total project costs amount to 89,840,000.00 zł gross price, including 74,607,604.04 zł that expenditure on the purchase of equipment and instrumentation software. This project will help to increase the number of new studies for biotechnology, bioengineering and bioinformatics.
