Marine and biotechnological research for sustainable industrial development

IRIS Environment is an international and multidisciplinary research environment, seeking innovative solutions to complex challenges, using our state-of-the-art experimental and analytical facilities.

Our researchers work closely with industry and institutional partners, on scientific and technical questions, integrating our competence within marine ecology, ecotoxicology, environmental risk assessment, operational monitoring, applied microbiology and biotechnology. Our combined competence enables us to tackle environmental issues from many angles, following a  gene-to-ecosystem approach, with the objective of reducing industrial footprint on the environment.
