FUNDING CALL - Developing engineering biology breakthrough ideas
02 Sep 2021
Application deadline extended to 2 September 2021
Engineering biology is the process of taking synthetic biology concepts and translating them into real-world solutions, for example:
- the design and fabrication of biological components and systems
- using engineering technologies and principles
- from modifications to natural systems through to artificial biology.
Consequently, engineering biology encompasses the entire innovation ecosystem, from breakthrough synthetic biology research to translation and application.
Engineering biology has the potential to offer solutions to a range of global societal challenges. This opportunity will create a pipeline for the development of high-risk, high-reward ideas and will exploit engineering biology approaches to generate impact across a range of sectors.
