Spanish research center is seeking for a research group with experience in small RNA regulation for knowledge exchange


A biotechnology research group of a Spanish technology centre is seeking for a European research group with experience in studies and regulation of microbial small RNA for knowledge exchange (techniques, tools, personnel) and future collaboration on a Horizon 2020 call under technical or research cooperation agreements.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Expertise in molecular biology of bacteria of industrial interest or model species, including techniques for nucleic acids analysis, bioinformatics and genetic engineering.

Partner sought

Academic research groups or biotech companies interested in the study of small RNA regulation (industrial microorganisms, model organisms and other) are sought in order to establish a technical o research collaboration agreement. It is sought to share techniques, use of bioinformatics programs, genetic engineering tools, and collaborate in specific objectives. This cooperation may include personnel mobility to exchange expertise and to start a collaboration line to develop future research and collaborative projects.


The organization is a Spanish private non-profit technology centre, founded in 1993, whose main activities are related to molecular biology and microbial biotechnology. The centre keeps close links with industrial research and innovation. The researchers of the centre have a long experience in molecular microbiology of actinomycete, especially on the regulation of secondary metabolism, and in techniques such as genetic engineering, genomics, transcriptomics, bioinformatics and proteomics. The institute counts with a long experience in European-funded research projects. The research group has experience on small RNA regulation in actinomycetes, has working with techniques as microbial culture including fermentation, gene cloning and genetic engineering, transcriptional regulation studies, transcriptomic analyses, proteomics and bioinformatics. The research group is looking other academic research groups with interest or experience on small RNA biology in Escherichia coli or in other bacteria. This area of research is relatively new and the experience and knowledge gained independently would act synergistically in collaboration. A technological collaboration agreement for knowledge transfer is sought. Further research cooperation will be empowered in order to develop new products or ideas for future calls in Horizon 2020 under research collaboration agreements.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
