Funded through responsive mode

BBSRC and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) have agreed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to welcome, encourage and support applications that may cut across their national boundaries and involve international collaborative teams, led by researchers from the UK and Republic of Ireland (ROI).
This provides for a 'Lead Agency Agreement' whereby BBSRC will receive and assess collaborative proposals from eligible institutions on behalf of both organisations.
