Welcome to iBO

The Institute for Bio-Economy and Agri-Technology (IBO), a non-profit research and technological development organization, is one of the five Institutes of the Center for Research and Technology – Hellas (CERTH) administered by the Ministry of Education, Religions Affairs and Long Life Learning.

IBO focuses on the scientific field of agro-technology and the broader scientific area of bio-systems engineering under the integration of multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary specializations and research units. At the same time, IBO's research priorities include rational environmental management and sustainability assessment of bio-production activities (agriculture and livestock farming), and the optimisation of human interactions within these activities, all in a direction of adopting the principles of the circular economy.
