The German Stifterverband, an association that promotes science and education in Germany, has awarded ibidi with their seal of quality for the company's ongoing and focused commitment to research and development.
ibidi, with knowledge of functional cell-based assays, participates in a vast number of research projects and also works with academic institutes to provide innovative solutions for customers. Since ibidi was founded, R&D have been the core part of the company that drives continuous product optimization and the development of new applications.
2014 is the first year that the German Stifterverband has awarded the Innovative Through Research prize. They asked companies to outline their R&D activities for 2013 as well as their strategies and goals for the upcoming years. The BMBF (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung) also supported this survey.
With this award, ibidi now belongs to the small circle of about 25,000 companies throughout Germany (out of 3.5 million companies in total), which create innovation and growth through their R&D activities.
The Stifterverband is a business community initiative that advocates the long-term improvement of the German education and research landscape. In order to achieve this goal, the Stifterverband provides funding for universities and research institutes, supports talents, analyses the higher education system and devises recommendations.
