UKRI: Developing engineering biology breakthrough ideas

  Wednesday, 28 Jul 2021 | Funding Deadline

Apply for funding to develop breakthrough ideas in engineering biology. Your project must focus on one of the following themes from the National Engineering Biology Programme (NEBP):

  • bioinspired design
  • novel materials
  • bio-engineered cells and systems.

Engineering biology encompasses the entire innovation ecosystem, from breakthrough synthetic biology research to translation and application. Engineering biology has the potential to offer solutions to a range of global societal challenges. This opportunity will create a pipeline for the development of high-risk, high-reward ideas and will exploit engineering biology approaches to generate impact across a range of sectors.

This call strongly encourages applicants from disciplines and communities seeking to drive cutting-edge fundamental engineering biology ideas and opportunities that can pull-through into impacts in key sectors (for example clinical, manufacturing, environmental).


Deadline for proposals: 28 July 2021
