Organised by BBSRC.


BBSRC and Innovate UK would like to announce the launch of the second phase of the UK Biofilms Programme to establish a Biofilms Innovation Knowledge Centre (IKC). An investment of approximately £12.5M will be provided to establish the IKC alongside an in-kind contribution of up to £1M worth of access, over five years to the High Performance Computing facilities within the Hartree Centre at the Science and Technology Facilities Council's (STFC) Daresbury Laboratory.

This launch event and workshop will include a series of presentations from Innovate UK and the Research Councils which will provide an overview of the UK Biofilms Programme to date, and specific details on the IKC call opportunity. Importantly, the event will also have dedicated sessions where potential applicants can cover specific questions in detail with the Research Councils and Innovate UK. The Knowledge Transfer Network will also host a workshop session where delegates will get a chance to inform future strategy and plans for the UK Biofilms Programme.

For further information about the call, see: UK Biofilms Programme.
