The Bio-Farma project under way in the southern Silesia region is aimed at developing a network of integrated and cooperating specialist research laboratories experienced in fields such as biotechnology, bioengineering and bioinformatics.

The project is being carried out by a consortium set up in 2007 by the Silesian University of Technology, the Medical University of Silesia, and the Gliwice branch of the Marie Curie-Skłodowska Memorial Cancer Center. The consortium aims to raise funds for joint investment projects, scientific research and activities designed to develop modern technologies. The project is being carried out as part of the European Union’s Innovative Economy Operational Program and has a budget of zl.89.84 million, of which zl.74.61 will be spent to buy research equipment, including software.

It is assumed that the project will contribute to increasing the number of new research studies for biotechnology, bioengineering and bioinformatics. One objective of the project is to buy research equipment for 14 laboratories; another is to carry out construction and renovation work for the needs of the Medical University of Silesia in Zabrze and the Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice.

The process of buying equipment for the laboratories is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2012. So far four laboratories have been provided with complete equipment.

Laboratories launched as part of the project will deal with research in areas including medical and environmental biotechnology, computational biology and bioinformatics, biomaterials and biomechanics, and nanotechnology and pharmaceutical chemistry.
