As far as access to knowledge and technology and talent are concerned:

The companies in the CIEB are in an ideal environment for the running of RD and innovation projects, generating synergies between them, as well as with groups such as the UMH researchers.

Settling in the CIEB is a way to get to the technology and knowledge of different UMH research groups, characterised especially by their research in Biotechnology as well as the transfer of technology, where we find University Institutes such as Neurosciences, Bioengineering, and Molecular and Cellular Biology and the Departamentos de Tecnología Agroalimentaria and Producción Vegetal y Microbiología.

Companies in the CIEB have access to the UMH bibliographical data bases, as well as the human capital provided by students and graduates.

As far as infrastructures, central and business services are concerned::

The companies and their staff count on infrastructures and centralised services (car parks, dining room, meeting rooms, purchasing centre, etc.), and with business services aimed at helping their growth, those concerned with sourcing private and public funding, networking and strategic planning activities.
