DuBiotech - advancing the business of science
The Dubai Biotechnology and Research Park (DuBiotech) is a science and Business Park dedicated to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry and is modelled on the free zone concept.
A member of Dubai Holding, DuBiotech will accommodate the biotechnology industry and facilitate government funded R&D. DuBiotech’s world-class infrastructure includes facilities and services for incubators, R&D labs, biotech-related educational and research institutions, manufacturing as well as organisations from supporting and convergent industries.
The headquarters for DuBiotech will be based in the Bio Head Quarters Building while the laboratories will be located in the Nucleotide Complex. So far, 26 companies have signed up to be Business Partners of DuBiotech. The expected completion date of the first phase of the project is beginning of 2010.
Dubai’s flourishing international business community and strategic location serve as a gateway to the Middle East, Europe, Africa, the Indian Sub-continent and the CIS regions.
DuBiotech aims to facilitate a rich environment for networking and collaboration within the biotech community by offering products such as office space, laboratory space, land area for manufacturing and R&D operations. The presence of hotels, retail, a hospital, schools, safety and security measures, and residential facilities ensure a quality lifestyle within the park.
Our business partners benefit from 100% foreign ownership, repatriation of profits and tax-free operations. Fast-track administration with no red tape promises hassle-free company licensing and visa procedures.
The regulatory environment
DuBiotech regulations will be developed in accordance with international standards set by regulatory organizations such as the FDA, WHO and ICH which govern all sectors of the life sciences industry, including Biotech, Pharmaceutical, Diagnostic and Medical devices. DuBiotech is committed to developing and enforcing regulations for health & safety, GMP, GLP, quality control and assurance, waste management, environmental issues, and bioethics.
The Foundation for Research and Innovation (FRI) - bridging research, education and industry
Through its Foundation for Research and Innovation (FRI) and government support, DuBiotech will endeavour to fund research that focuses on medical, environmental and agricultural issues relevant to the Gulf region. Currently, DuBiotech is in the process of developing the grant policy, application process, and funding mechanisms of the FRI, where grant proposals will be reviewed on their scientific merit, economic impact, and potential regional benefits. Joint ventures between DuBiotech and biotechnology companies will be considered by DuBiotech’s science investment committee.
