Biocant - Technology Transfer Association

biocant.pt

BIOCANT Park is the first Portuguese venue entirely devoted to Biotechnology. Here, advanced Life Sciences knowledge and technology are developed and applied creating value in business initiatives. Through an audacious investment by the Municipality of Cantanhede and by the Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology of Coimbra, and taking advantage of the last years’ national investment in Life Sciences, it was possible to set out an integrated development strategy to promote entrepreneurship and economic growth. The core of the Park is the R&D center – BIOCANT, Biotechnology Innovation Center – where specialized research teams use their built-up scientific competences to generate novel services and products. The scientific units of BIOCANT have committed staff and state-of-the-art equipment with high-throughput capacity.
