Research Infrastructure

National Institute of Biology (NIB) is located at two premises: headquarters and 3 research groups are located in Ljubljana, while Marine Biology Station Piran is situated in Piran. Its highly skilled and flexible scientific staff has advanced and up-to-date research instrumentation and facilities at their disposal. Laboratories operate according to a quality management system certified under ISO 9001 and selected laboratories are accredited according to ISO/IEC 17025. We have also acquired the Good Laboratory Practice Certificate.

Infrastructural Centres

Infrastructural Centres (IC) manage expensive scientific research equipment that enables sophisticated technological research. The use and maintenance of this equipment requires in-depth knowledge. The two infrastructural centres
at NIB are:

Infrastructural Centre Planta (IC Planta) that is part of the Department of Biotechnology and Systems Biology.
Infrastructural Centre of Marine Biology Station Piran (IC MBP) is part of the Marine Biology Station Piran.

The operation of ICs is mostly financed by the Slovenian Research Agency in the scope of the NIB infrastructure programme. Each IC provides services and equipment for the public and the private sector.
