BBSRC funding opportunities and news

Enterprise Fellowships

Funded by BBSRC and delivered by The Royal Society of Edinburgh, Enterprise Fellowships are designed to encourage the development of a new business, building on previously funded BBSRC research, around a technological idea developed by the Fellow and within which the Fellow would be expected to play a leading role.


BBSRC-NSF/BIO Lead Agency Opportunity


'Stand-alone' LINK

LINK applications involve collaborative research with at least one company and one science-base partner (projects with SMEs are particularly favoured) where at least 50% of the full project cost comes from industry.


Responsive mode application deadlines

You can submit research grant applications at any time for consideration by one of our Research Committees under our responsive mode scheme, on any topic within our portfolio.


Industrial Partnership Awards (IPA)

Industrial Partnership Awards (IPAs) encourage and support collaboration between academic research groups and industry. IPAs are academic - led, responsive mode grants that have significant industrial involvement and industry partner(s) contributes in cash at least equivalent to 10% of the full project costs.
