IBioIC Feasibility Programme November 2020

The Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC) invites applications for industry-led collaborative research projects from businesses with a foothold in Scotland or those who could deliver inward investment to help stimulate Scotland’s Economy.

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.

Call Closes 6th November 2020
