The first phase of NIBB, including CBMNet, came to a close in 2019. This website is no longer actively maintained but you can still read about some of our successes, achievements and outputs here. The first phase of NIBB were a huge success with the result that BBSRC invested £11 million into a second phase of NIBB, with siginificant support from EPSRC. These networks will run from 2019 – 2024, are free to join throughout their lifetime and will provide pump-priming funding and networking events.
