To pump prime the next generation of tools, technologies and resources that will be required by bioscience researchers in scientific areas within our remit

Key aims

This call was intended to:

  • Support small or short-duration, pump-priming (pilot) projects that enable excellent bioscience
  • Encourage applications that develop novel tools, technologies and methods spanning the breadth of BBSRC research and underpin in the long-run all of our strategic priorities and the wider biosciences
  • Involve interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches. It is important that applications demonstrate appropriate collaborative connections, and biological demonstration/knowledge derivation
