About us

Imagen de Quiénes somos

At Asebio, the Spanish Bioindustry Association, we bring together and represent the interests of companies, associations, foundations, universities, technology and research centers that work in the field of biotechnology in Spain.

Since 1999, we have worked to achieve positive political and economic changes that promote and boost the development of the Spanish biotechnology industry. In order to do this, Asebio works closely with regional, national and European legislative bodies, as well as with all those social organisations that are committed to using biotechnology to improve citizens’ quality of life, environmental sustainability, economic development and skilled job creation.

Our broad membership base and our extensive network of national and international collaborations make Asebio the key representative when it comes to designing policies and programmes for encouraging innovation, entrepreneurship and company development in the biotechnology industry, an undisputed vehicle for economic and social growth in Spain.

For Asebio, cooperation and working as part of a network is a priority. This is why we are members of EuropaBio, the European Bioindustry Association, which is made up of almost one hundred business organisations, together representing the interests of over 1800 European companies.

Asebio is also a member of the CEOE (Spanish Confederation of Business Organisations) and we collaborate with various scientific and medical societies, such as the Spanish Biotechnology Society (SEBiot), the Spanish Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Society (SEBBM), the Spanish Federation of Neuromuscular Diseases (ASEM), the Spanish Haematology and Haemotherapy Foundation (FEHH), the Spanish Medical Oncology Society (SEOM) and the Spanish Neuroscience Society (SENC).
