Solving serious problems in health, energy and the bioeconomy

Urgent solutions are needed for the way our global community generates and uses energy, engages with our environment, and deals with serious health issues. 

At the AIBN we are working on the answers.





Tough problems call for a new way of looking at the world. Our approach – merging bio-engineering and nano-science – is purposely disruptive. It allows us to look at things differently and solve problems in a way others cannot. 

We are solving tomorrow’s problems today.  We work closely with industry to translate cutting-edge science into practical, game-changing solutions.
