BBSRC’s International Schemes include a range of shorter and longer term awards for working with overseas scientists and researchers. Depending on the type of award, the funding can be used for:
This Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) priority aims to support research focused on combatting antimicrobial resistance (AMR), and research that underpins the development of strategies to mitigate the effects, for example, through novel alternatives to antimicrobials.
The Belmont Forum is a group of the world’s major and emerging funders of global environmental change research, that aims to support international transdisciplinary research for understanding, mitigating and adapting to global environmental change.
The aim of Better Methods, Better Research (BMBR) is to ensure optimal research methods are being used to advance biomedical, health and care focused research, policy and delivery. Funding is available for research that develops and delivers ways to improve the research methods being used by others.
This research area covers the thermochemical conversion of biomass to energy vectors – for example, heat, electricity and liquid fuels.
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council’s (BBSRC) interests are focused on supporting research projects that will deliver greenhouse gas emission savings through the biologic production of sustainable, advanced biofuels and other low carbon fuels.
The BIO-Carbon programme will provide new insights into the role of marine life in ocean carbon storage and robust predictions of future ocean carbon storage in a changing climate. The programme aims to highlight the importance of international waters in carbon policy and will focus on processes that are globally relevant.
This research area focuses on understanding information processing in biological systems.
The application of engineering methods to create environments and or materials that promote cell or tissue growth and function, in vitro and in vivo.
The aim of this investment area is to harness, with public trust, the power of data resources and tools to gain new health and wellbeing insights. This will enable biomedical and health research on a scale not previously possible, leading to transformational advances in medicine and public health.
