Bio-NEST was launched by BIRAC with a vision that focused on fostering the biotech innovation ecosystem in the country. Unlike start ups in the IT sector, enterprising ideas in the biotech sector need incubation support of a different kind where they need a landing space to test their ideas, run their operations, have access to high end instrumentations and locate in a place where they connect with other start ups and mentors. Bio-NEST program provides support to establish bio-incubators either as a standalone entity or as a part of the academia.
Through the BioNEST scheme, BIRAC has supported 60 bioincubators with the cumulative area of 6,40,349 sq. ft. The 60 bio‐incubators are placed either within academic/research Institutes, medical hospitals, Biotech clusters or as stand‐alone incubators that are supported through private, Central or State Governments.
