BioIncubaTech takes part on the project “High Technology Incubators for the innovation foment and the technology transference to SMEs”, in order to promote a modernization of the region’s productive framework.
i-Grape Laboratory was one of the few companies which were selected in the first call after a selection process among candidates from all over Spain.
Individual project presented by i-Grape to the H2020 EIC SME Instrument phase 2 call in October 2020. The development of the extracts obtained by i-Grape for uses as veterinary medicine, food additives and biopesticide were considered. This project was awarded with the “Seal of Excelence” of the European Commission.
Individual project presented to the GAIN call: <<Aid for the granting of subsidies for the promotion of Galician participation in the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation of the European Union (Horizon 2020).>>. Selected Project
NeoGiANT (The power of grape extracts: antimicrobial and antioxidant properties to prevent the use of antibiotics in farmed animals) is an innovation action (IA) from the H2020 of the EU led by the University of Santiago de Compostela.
The aim of the NeoGiANT project is to develop a series of new products ( animal feed, desease treatment products and sperm preservatives) based on our natural extracts in order to decrease the use of antibiotics in animal husbandry and replace synthetic preservatives.
The i-Grape extracts from grape marc are the whole project base. The new products will have as an active ingredient our extracts obtained from Vitis vinifera through a sustainable and patented extraction process.
The 4-year project financed with more than 8.3 million euros will be carried out by a consortium coordinated by the University of Santiago de Compostela and formed by 20 partners from 9 countries (ES, UK, PL, CZ, HU, DE, PT, BE and AR): 4 higher education institutions (Universities of Santiago de Compostela, Porto, Berlin and South Bohemia in the Czech Republic), 5 research organisations (MRI, IBPRS, VRI, MATE and CONICET), 5 SMEs (i-Grape Laboratory, Contactica, Anitom, LifeBioEncapsulation, Bianor Biotech) and three big companies (CZ Vaccines, Magapor and Nutrition Science)- as well as the Association of Young Farmers (ASAJA) and the Spanish Association for Standardisation (UNE).
i-Grape collaborates with three research groups of the Universities of León and Salamanca in three different projects, funded by the General Foundation of the University of León and the Business (FGULEM) and the General Foundation of the University of Salamanca, respectively, in the framework of the TCUE Plan 2021-2023 (https://www.redtcue.es/tcue/que-es-tcue), co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Junta de Castilla y León.
i-Grape extracts have been selected in these projects because of their excellent antimicrobial and antioxidant properties due to its high content of polyphenols (proanthocyanodins). Two research lines will be explored, concerning the treatment of heart failure and the in vitro assays for sperm preservation.
