IBMP has cultivated long-lasting partnerships with numerous national, European and international, public and private partners. In particular, IBMP maintains close links with Inrae, as well as with its Swiss and German partners.

Half of IBMP research groups participate in two Laboratoire d’Excellence (LabEx); three teams are involved in the LabEX MitoCross, and five teams in the LabEX NetRNA.

Highly supportive of international collaborations, IBMP participates in numerous projects and collaborative networks (INTERREG, ITN and COST Actions).

Furthermore, two Associated International Laboratories (LIA) have been established: one with China and one with Brazil.

As a leading player in Plant Science, the IBMP is highly attractive for international researchers. Since its creation in 1988, IBMP has welcomed staff members from 44 different countries.

On top of its basic research activity, IBMP pays particular attention to the needs of industrial, economic and societal stakeholders. In order to support industrial research and development, IBMP tries to bring innovative answers, to develop new technologies with its partners, characterize new products, and provide access to its scientific equipment and to in-house technological platforms.

A close and efficient public-private partnership with the company Plant Advanced Technologies has led to the creation of the joint laboratory (LabCom) TerpFactory dedicated to metabolic engineering.

Finally, IBMP uses a wide range of national (ANR, Projet Investissement d’Avenir), European (FP7 and Horizon 2020) and international funding sources.
