BBSRC have funded two new Enterprise Fellowships to boost the development of new businesses from investments in research. The Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) Enterprise Fellowship scheme provides support to researchers and innovators who have promising business ideas.
BBSRC collaborative grants require a letter of support from research organisations’ technology transfer office (or equivalent) and each partner, as well as a commitment to enact a collaboration agreement if the grant is funded. In May 2016 BBSRC updated its requirements for collaborative grants with industry and other users. The changes support Research Organisations (RO) to maximise the wider economic, and social benefits from BBSRC research investments.
BBSRC today announced the closure of its International Scientific Interchange Scheme (ISIS) before the launch of an International Travel Award Scheme (ITAS) that will allow scientists to add an international dimension to their BBSRC funded research. The International Scientific Interchange Scheme closes 10 July with final applications needing to be entered at least 6 weeks before travel.
