COBIOE: building a common European strategy for biomanufacturing
The objective of the "Growing Connection for Bio Ecosystems" (COBIOE) project is to bring about a common and inclusive European strategy to strengthen the health biomanufacturing sector. Constructed and coordinated by Genopole, COBIOE is the first EU initiative for the sector. The project was selected by the European Commission and signed 27 December by the GIP and its four partners composing the consortium: CEBR, EIT Health, Health Cluster Portugal and ScanBalt. All are major ecosystems for health innovation in Europe.
COBIOE has three objectives: (1) identify actors in the biomanufacturing value chain (2) create an interactive network and particularly connections with isolated actors to reduce European regional fractures, and (3) give visibility to the network to enrich it and strengthen cooperation.
By taking an active part in the creation of a European biomanufacturing alliance, Genopole is giving energy to the sector in France and strengthening its position in Europe. COBIOE will be managed in coherence with the objectives of France BioLead and PIIEC santé, a substantial European project to structure the sector at the continental level. The partnerships, technologies, competencies and other outcomes of COBIOE will benefit the biocluster's actors and heighten its attractiveness.Learn more about the launch
