iBB Launches Ignition Grants to Foster Internal and International Collaboration

iBB Launches Ignition Grants to Foster Internal and International Collaboration | iBB | Scoop.it

iBB has launched a call for internal, ignition grants, with the aim of promoting  pilot research projects.  The projects should be aligned with at least one of the four thematic research lines identified in the 2015-2020 strategic plan of iBB: Stem Cell Bioengineering, Advanced Bioprocessing, Post-Genomic Technologies and Enviornmental Challenges. These projects should be designed to foster i) internal colaboration between BERG and BSRG and ii) the international and industrial partnerships. The proposals will be evaluated by members of the International Scientific Advisory Committee of iBB. The call closes on May 31st. Contact iBB secretariat to learn more (bb@ibb.pt).
