Are you part of a small or medium sized enterprise (SME) or University/Research Institute?
The Algal Bioenergy Special Interest Group (AB SIG), through the Knowledge Transfer Network, is pleased to announce that 6 Algal SPARK Awards are now live and able to accept applications. The SPARK Awards are being funded as a means to encourage new collaborations between the research community and industry.
Grant funding for these awards has been provided by NERC.
How it works
The grants, which are of a fixed value of £5,000 (plus any applicable VAT), are awarded to the research partner to tackle a problem relevant to the SME.
Projects must be in the area of Algal Biotechnology and Bioenergy and focus on Ecosystem Services.
The scheme is designed to provide quick approval with minimal bureaucracy.
