CLIB (Cluster Industrial Biotechnology) is an international open innovation cluster of large companies, SMEs, academic institutes and universities, as well as other stakeholders active in biotechnology and bioeconomy as a whole. The cluster comprises over 100 members with a share of about 25 % international members. The overall goal of CLIB is to network stakeholders along and across value chains and to identify new opportunities for innovation, projects, and business.
Through this, the cluster develops cross-sectoral biotechnological solutions for sustainable processes and products. Pertinent project areas are identified by the CLIB team in conjunction with members in an iterative process. CLIB is a non-profit association, with its members shaping the cluster’s interests and activities. The cluster coordinates several associated programmes which cover different aspects of bioeconomy, and invites members to become involved. To this end, CLIB organises a number of events throughout the year: forum events, topic-specific workshops, dedicated small partnering meetings and visits to partners, sites or meetings in Germany and abroad.
