Synthetic Biology Applications for Protective Materials

The EPSRC Engineering theme, in partnership with Dstl and the BBSRC, are inviting proposals that explore research in the area of Synthetic Biology applications for Protective Materials.

Funds of up to £2.5 million are available. We expect to support between four and five research projects, up to three years in duration, subject to the quality of the proposals received.

Under this partnership, funding is available to support cutting-edge, novel academic research on new applications for Synthetic Biology with regard to protective materials. Proposals will be assessed through external peer review followed by a panel meeting.

Applicants must complete the Intent to Submit survey on this page by 28 August 2015; applicants who do not do this will be ineligible for the call.

Please note that the call will not be open in the Je-S system until 23 July 2015.
