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
