BBSRC and Innovate UK would like to announce the launch of the second phase of the UK Biofilms Programme. This will be an approximate £12.5M investment to establish a Biofilms Innovation Knowledge Centre (IKC). The IKC will also be supported by an in-kind contribution of up to £1M worth of High Performance Computing facilities access over five years from the Science and technology Facilities Council (STFC) within the Hartree Centre. For further information see: www.bbsrc.ac.uk/biofilms
The launch event and workshop will take place in London at Amba Hotel Marble Arch on Friday 11 November 2016 from 10.00am to 4pm.
The event 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.
