ERASYNBIO 1ST JOINT CALL FOR TRANSNATIONAL RESEARCH PROJECTSERASYNBIO 1ST JOINT CALL FOR TRANSNATIONAL RESEARCH PROJECTS

13th May 2013

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) is contributing €3M as a major partner in a new Europe-wide call for research projects in Synthetic Biology.

The call is the first from the Synthetic Biology ERA-NET (ERASynBio) - a project designed to enhance European Synthetic Biology research through joint policy making, community building and training, and transnational funding.

BBSRC, along with 12 other ERASynBio funding agencies from Europe and the USA will support around €15M of research into this emerging field. The call represents a unique opportunity to build global Synthetic Biology capacity through innovative transnational projects.

The funding will allow European and US researchers to come together to work on high impact, high reward projects and address Synthetic Biology challenges which cannot be tackled at a national level.
