The Foundation Istituto Insubrico di Ricerca per la Vita (FIIRV) was born thanks to Provincia di Varese, Stato e Repubblica del Cantone Ticino, Regio Insubrica, University of Insubria, Cardiocentro Ticino Foundation and Comune di Busto Arsizio. All these entities together promoted its realization with the clear goal to support, promote and protect research in a boundary context which has great potentialities.

FIIRV has got an heritage made of a very rare collection of 166.000 microbiological extracts and 15.000 strains and a Research Center named Insubrias BioPark.

The Foundation primary activity is research. It has got a proper team in the Pharmacology, Microbiology and Biotechnology fields.

Moreover, in the BioPark management, it gives support to start-up and spin-off companies, with the aim to improve the Insubrias BioPark and to make it a reference and a connection for all those actors present in the territory, from the Companies to the Academic and Research Institutes.
