View all OPEN opportunities

The 2019 TRDF call aims to pump prime the next generation of cutting-edge enabling research technologies with the potential for transformative impact in life sciences research (both biological and biomedical). It will support applications for early stage technology development and research into the development of novel techniques and technologies based on new advances in fundamental engineering, physical and life sciences that have the potential to enable transformative step changes in research capability.

This call, led by BBSRC, with significant co-funding from EPSRC and MRC, is making available up to £3 million to support short high-risk high-reward pilot studies directed towards the development of novel technologies for use in discovery life science research. 

Full proposals must be submitted by 16:00 on 17 September 2019 and will be assessed by an expert peer review panel. 

For more information, including details on how to apply and eligibility criteria, please view the full 2019 TRDF call on BBSRC's website.
