Cooperation as Core Strategy

We believe that knowledge is better developed in a trustful cooperation environment. Cooperation is a key element in GranBio’s technology strategy.

Since its foundation GranBIo promotes intensive interaction with universities, research institutes, cientists and other companies to develop and complement its technologies. The first ideas about GranBio’s business plan were born in a cafeteria of Unicamp University in 2011. Unicamp is one of the most innovative institutions in Brazil with which GranBio holds strong ties in joint research and common social impact interests.
