Extracta Partnering Policy

EXTRACTA seeks dynamic partnerships ACADEMIA and INDUSTRY. Partnerships are often funded or financed in part by Brazilian Governmental S&T Agencies.

Partnering With Industry
Research Collaboration Contracts relate to bioprospection performed on the EXTRACTA Bank of Chemical Biodiversity. Such contracts may entail R&D activities fully carried out by EXTRACTA (as was the case of the 1999 contract with GlaxoSmithKline,see News[hyperlink]) or carried out in part by the Client at his home lab.

Other partnerships with Industry relate to the characterization of plant drugs and essences as a basis for development of Phytotherapics and Cosmetics. Such collaboration may encompass the assembly of specific supply chains and fostering of productive activity in local communities.

Partnering with Academia
EXTRACTA network of Academic Partners is formed by internationally recognized Brazilian Laboratories, mostly based in Rio de Janeiro (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and others) and Belém (Federal University of Pará). EXTRACTA has collaborative links with other States and International labs.
This varied assembly of internationally recognized laboratories is open for EXTRACTA R&D interactions in several fields of its endeavor, such as:
