We understand...


We are IBEC: The Integrated Bioscience and Built Environment Consortium

IBEC bridges the gap between science and real-world application so people can feel safe gathering together again in indoor spaces.

THIS IS IBEC

We make buildings and the people in them safer and healthier.

By weaving together disparate technical disciplines and knowledge areas, we provide real-world solutions that mitigate risk, liability and protect what matters most - people.

Scientists Making Buildings Safer

We work with global experts, scientists, and researchers to partner with industry leaders and organizations to address viruses like COVID-19, along with other contagious pathogens, in their buildings and shared environments.
At IBEC, we are making buildings safer and more prepared to handle COVID-19, and other airborne-transmitted infections, too.

Vaccine Alone Won’t Stop Community Transmission

As Dr. Mariangela Simao, WHO assistant director-general for access to medicines and health products recently stated:

“People need to continue to use masks consistently, be in ventilated spaces, hand hygiene ... the physical distance, avoid crowding. This still continues to be extremely important, even if you’re vaccinated when you have a community transmission ongoing.”

We Are Here To Help You Do Exactly This.

WHY THIS WORK IS NEEDED

Learn more about the challenges facing communities & why our work is needed

ACT

Learn how to use your voice to decrease airborne transmitted infections.

We promote confidence, data-driven solutions, and innovative technologies to implement control and management practices to reduce viral transmission.

OUR GROWTH MINDSET

We seek to accelerate the contributions of science and technology for healthy built environments.
And we won't stop until we're safe.

OUR CORE FUNCTIONS

PROMOTE

We help build the confidence and skill needed to help people feel safe.

INTEGRITY

We hold ourselves to a high standard. We are committed to being fair, objective, and proactively transparent in our decisions and behaviors. We honor our commitments and doing the right things, even when no one is looking.

Building Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity (DE&I) principles into everything we do.

We believe in designing for those who are affected most and seeking transformative solutions whenever possible.

ORGANIZING A SINGLE,
RECOGNIZED, EXPERT RESOURCE

We believe the world needs a single recognized expert resource from those that understand buildings, people, and pathogens best.

INTEGRATING BUSINESS AND SCIENCE

We believe business and science must work together to take research to practice and practice to research.

THE GAMEPLAN

IBEC is bridging the gap between proven scientific processes and real-world applications for healthy gathering.
