Feasibility projects should focus on innovative applications to industrial biotechnology and address a real market need or commercial opportunity through collaborative knowledge exchange and research between Industry Members and at least one of Scotland’s talented HEI research teams. Successful projects will demonstrate a route to follow on funding or commercial application.
