About us

The European Centre for Marine Biotechnology is the business incubator of choice for new and emerging marine biotechnology companies. We provide tailored incubation solutions designed to maximize your company’s survival as well as a supportive and developmental business environment.

We can provide fully fitted, high quality laboratory accommodation and flexible office space designed to suit a wide variety of business needs. We also offer graduation space to assist companies in reaching their long term requirements. Our co-location with an established and internationally recognized marine research organisation (SAMS) gives us the potential to provide unique opportunities and synergies for international networking and collaboration. The Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) is one of the oldest oceanographic organisations in the world with a wide range of activities and relationships. It is a collaborative centre of the Natural Environment Research Council and hosts two national facilities, the Culture Collection of Algae and Protozoa (CCAP) and the National Facility for Scientific Diving (NFSD). The interaction of the European Centre for Marine Biotechnology with SRSL allow resident companies direct access to the commercial services offered by SAMS.  

The European Centre for Marine Biotechnology provides relevant and effective facilities to cultivate business growth with fully equipped, virtual and actual, seminar and conference facilities, backed by an extensive scientific library. We are committed to providing high quality services and actively encouraging collaboration between resident companies as part of its commitment to the marine biotechnology sector.

The European Centre for Marine Biotechnology is a member of the SAMS group.
