Early Translation Accelerator- Industrial Biotechnology (ETA-IB) is a BIRAC supported programme for enhanced industry- academia interactions. The aim of ETA is to add translational component to an already established proof-of-concept and to attract industry to take these validated technologies further in terms of development. This will be in collaboration with academic investigators, industry and international translation ecosystems. The core ETA-IB activities is to implement ETA-IB objectives through identification and administration of the projects which will be scouted from the research laboratories, all over the country and to coordinate the implementation activities. The implementing agency is IIT Madras Bioincubator.
