Press Release - Inauguration of Center of Innovative and Applied Bioprocessing by Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Hon’ble Minister for Science & Technology and Earth Sciences Technologies Available for Transfer Licensing 5th Foundation Day of CIAB on May 01, 2017

Welcome to Center of Innovative and Applied Bioprocessing (CIAB)

Center of Innovative and Applied Bioprocessing (CIAB) at Mohali (Punjab, India), formerly Bioprocessing Unit, is a national institute under the Department of Biotechnology (Govt. of India). It is a member institute of the Knowledge City Cluster of Institutions comprising of CIAB, IISER, INST, ISB, PBTI, BTP.

There is a growing gap between R&D leads, processes and technologies from the laboratory benches and the range, value and volume of tangible translational products of volume or value that actually happen in a contemporary manner. Further, innovative thoughts and ideas may create or catalyze newer product anticipation and/or catalyze newer avenues of applications. Thus, there is an urgent need of mission to project, probe and pursue these leads/opportunities towards potential pragmatic applications that may actually emanate from them in an institutional mode. It is in this perspective that the Department of Biotechnology (Govt. of India) envisioned to take up this mission of different facets of agri-produce or bio-produce as a 'Secondary Agriculture Initiative for Value Added Products (SAI-VAP) through this new national institute, the Center of Innovative and Applied Bioprocessing (CIAB).

Accordingly, CIAB is being established with a broad vision "To be a lead research & innovation organization testing and translating compositional knowledge and leads of bioresources for their productive processing and value additive primary and secondary agriculture bioproducts for edible and non-edible usage"
