The Bioinformatics and Biological Resources (BBR) Fund aims to: support the bioscience research community with the establishment, maintenance and enhancement of infrastructures; support high quality bioinformatics and biological resources that align with our updated Strategic Plan: The Age of Bioscience; supply long-term funding and provide a stable environment for resource development and provision.
The Agri-Tech Catalyst has been set up by Innovate UK, DFID and BBSRC with £70M investment to help make the UK a world leader in agricultural technology, innovation and sustainability. Successive rounds will be held until the funding has been committed.
Our FLexible Interchange Programme (FLIP) supports the movement of people from one environment to a different one to exchange knowledge/technology/skills, developing bioscience research/researchers and addressing our strategic priorities.
Modular Training Partnerships (MTPs) fund the development of industrially-relevant short training courses at Masters level. Training should be developed in close collaboration with industry, and evidence of industrial demand is a key requirement for funding.
Our STARS programme aims to support the development of strategically important and vulnerable research skills and capabilities in the biosciences. Awards are available to develop postgraduate-level training in areas of significant need for clearly defined academic and industrial sectors.
