OPEN INNOVATION MEETING GRANTS

We have grants available to assist our industrial members in hosting an event to help solve their industrial biotechnology challenges

Our Open Innovation Meeting Grants allow industrial CBMNet members to engage with selected members of CBMNet, in the form of a meeting. For example, the industrial host to hold a confidential meeting to discuss a specific research challenge, to engage with a small, focused group of experts to identify possible solutions. Or, industry host could hold a non-confidential meeting exploring CBMNet relevant scientific theme, with a view to generating project ideas which could form the basis of collaborative funding applications. Meetings are expected to be for 1 or 2 days and include at least 6 CBMNet members.

Amount available: up to £2,000 per meeting
Important dates: OPEN CALL

For more information please take a look at our CBMNet Open Innovation Operational Guidelines

Applications must be directly related to industrial biotechnology or bioenergy (IBBE) and within the CBMNet Remit. BBSRC defines IBBE as: The use of biological resources (including plants, algae, marine life, fungi and micro-organisms) for producing and processing materials, chemicals and energy.
