Deadline: 30 April 2021

The ICGEB Research Grants support projects in agricultural biotechnology, basic life sciences, bioenergy, and many other fields. 

The grants are intended to facilitate the creation of research facilities in promising institutes; promote the training of young scientists, and develop new research programs in participating countries. 

The program is open to applicants who have positions at universities and research institutes in ICGEB's member states. Grants are a maximum of €25 thousand per year for projects of up to 36 months. 

The deadline for submitting applications is 30 April 2021.

Type of Support

Grants are awarded to contribute to the implementation of outstanding scientific research projects. An important element of successful applications is the feasibility of the proposed project within the designated time frame (maximum 36 months). The maximum annual contribution from ICGEB is Euro 25,000.

Funds can only be used to cover expenditures that are directly relevant to the project. This may include purchasing consumable items, scientific literature, and basic standard laboratory equipment. Travel and training costs can also be covered.

Salaries of the Principal Investigators and infrastructural support (e.g., normal administrative and overhead expenses of the Institution, maintenance, and rental of capital equipment, building, etc.) are not admissible and cannot be funded.
