About National Agri-Food Biotechnology Institute:
NABl is co-located alongwith Bioprocessing Unit (BPU) , an independent institute, being set up under the DBT and an Agri-Food Biotech Park(ABP) being set up under public-private partnership. The NABI, BPU and ABP would therefore comprise an Agri-Food Biotech cluster that would act as a “biotechnology hub” in the region. The agri food cluster has been developed to link three essential related biotechnologies of crops, food and nutrition, and carry out bench to market activity through its state and regional resource networks. A translation unit would be set up in NABI to establish linkages in the region among relevant R&D units, Management Institute and Small & Medium industries. The unit will support, strengthen, and promote innovation through several initiatives. It will support R&D research resource units in the State and region. It will administer innovation grants in agri and food sector to create innovation ecosystem in punjab and neighboring states. It will scout early stage leads and technologies in existing institutes at Punjab and rest of the country and offer partnership for product development & commercialization. It will integrate S&T development through bottom up science & horizontal technology acquisition & development. It will establish “resource center” within existing institutes of Punjab State to enable the generation of a competitive intramural process and expand the talent pool for innovation and product development. It will facilitate traversing the complete path from discovery to market. You are invited to walk through the slide show under Indicative Programmes to get a flavour of the research programmes and technologies being planned for the biotech cluster at Mohali to make Indian agriculture & food industry more innovation driven, remunerative and sustainable. Your remarks, suggestions, inquiries and partnership proposals are welcome. You may reach us under the Contact section.
