NIBB Network Updates - £10K BIVs & more!
All the activities from all the BBSRC Networks in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (NIBB) have now been collated. This information includes all the Business Interaction Vouchers and Proof of Concept grants awarded by all the Networks thus far, as well as a number of interesting statistics. Download this information at the BBSRC NIBB website here.

All of the BBSRC NIBB Networks are now able to offer Business Interaction Vouchers (BIVs) of up to £10K which are awarded to an academic partner  and must be match funded in kind or cash by the industrial partner. BIVs enable an industry partner to 'buy' an academic's time and expertise to look at a specific problem. Our vouchers are available on a rolling basis - find out more and apply here.
