Established in 1988, the programme aims to stimulate collaborative research in the Member States and with the ICGEB Component laboratories, to promote the training of young scientists and to facilitate the creation of appropriate research facilities. The programme provides support for research projects in basic science, human healthcare, industrial and agricultural biotechnology and bioenergy. A call for applications is launched yearly.
We are pleased to confirm that almost 600 applications, over 100 COVID-related, from across 52 Member States have been received under the 2020 call for Grants.
