Multi-disciplinary research centres in synthetic biology

7th May 2013

Following the launch of the Synthetic Biology Roadmap in 2012, the RCUK Synthetic Biology Working Group is developing a call for Multi-disciplinary Research Centres in Synthetic Biology. The call will be supported by BBSRC and EPSRC, with BBSRC administering the call.

Up to six centres will be funded in two phases; three in this financial year and three next financial year.

The call is expected to launch in June, preceded by an 'Expression of Interest' (EoI) stage to which interested parties must submit a short application. The 'Expression of Interest' stage will be launching early May.

The full call is preceded by this 'Expression of Interest' (EoI) stage where interested parties are strongly encouraged to submit a short application  to BBSRC by 28 May 2013, 4pm. Completed forms should be submitted to SynBioRC@bbsrc.ac.uk under the subject heading ‘SBRC Expression of Interest Form’.

For more information and to see how to submit your short Expression of Interest Form, go to: http://www.bbsrc.ac.uk/funding/opportunities/2013/synthetic-biology-research-centres.aspx
