Institutional

IPROByQ is an institution formed by professionals from different disciplines who use scientific knowledge to develop technologies with measurable socio-economic impact. Since its foundation in 2014, the institute has focused its efforts on the development and transfer of chemical and biotechnological processes, which directly or through their products replace industrial processes that pollute the environment. In all cases, the aim is that the technologies developed also increase the productivity of obsolete processes, in order to favor their rapid adoption by the industrial sector.

IPROByQ is an Institute that belongs to both UNR and CONICET, located in Mitre 1998. Its professionals devote much of their time to train technologists with an integral vision, who focus their efforts on those projects capable of generating the greatest impact on the productive sector. In addition to specific technical training, the institute has initiated training programs for its fellows in the areas of intellectual property analysis, project management, business analysis and regulatory aspects. The main objective is to train human resources with the capacity to generate new companies or to join existing companies and contribute with their knowledge to increase the competitiveness of national industry and job creation.

In addition to their academic achievements, in a few years, IPROByQ professionals have generated an important socio-economic impact by forming a large number of technology-based (TBCs) companies, some of them obtaining international patents. The TBCs formed by IPROByQ have made national companies and foreign capitals invest important sums of money in Argentina.
