The Nexus Network has initially committed £500,000 to provide grants for pilot projects, blue-sky ideas, working papers and placements which can address the interconnected challenges of the nexus (food, water, energy and the environment). The outputs from these projects, ideas, papers and placements will be publicised through the network and may also lay the foundations for larger projects, to be funded by the ESRC or other sources.

The call is open. Deadline: July 3rd, 2014 17:00 CET The Synthetic Biology ERA-NET (ERASynBio) is pleased to announce its 2nd joint call for transnational research projects in Synthetic Biology. The call will represent an unique opportunity for Europe and the USA to build Synthetic Biology capacity through innovative transnational projects.Submissions of proposals will be in a single step procedure at: http://www.erasynbio.eu/2nd-call. Together, the 12 funding organizations involved in this call expect to support around 16 Mill. € for Synthetic Biology research, which can be described as a multidisciplinary approach at the intersection of life sciences, engineering and information technology. Based on the results of the 1st joint call the 2nd joint call will again address broad research areas within Synthetic Biology, based on the following definition: “Synthetic Biology is the engineering of biology: the deliberate (re)design and construction of novel biological and biologically based parts, devices and systems to perform new functions for useful purposes, that draws on principles elucidated from biology and engineering.”
