Bio-E Initiative for South West Collaboration
Academics at the University of Bath are strongly encouraged to participate in Bio-E, an initiative between the universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter which aims to develop cross collaborative research projects in the South West, focusing on medical technologies that look to translate innovative research in material sciences and engineering towards bio-medical applications. Bio-E is also specifically aimed at encouraging cooperation across the institutions.
Funding will be available for 8-10 pilot projects across any combination of the 4 universities (but most likely 2 universities) within the following 4 themes:
- Bioelectronics, Biosensors, Robotics and Biomechanics
- Biophotonics and Imaging
- Materials sciences and tissue engineering
- Systems biology and complexity science
Funding will be available for projects of 6 months duration with a cap of £25K per project per University.
Bio-E is being coordinated by the Severnside Alliance for Translational Research (SARTRE) and will be run in two phases. The first phase opened on Monday 17 October with a deadline for applications of 30 November. There will be a networking workshop in Bristol on 11 November. Attendance at the workshop is strongly encouraged but not compulsory.
Once registered on-line you will received a confirmatory email together with further information regarding on-line networking.
The second phase of the initiative will be launched in January with themed networking events to be held at the 4 Universities - details to follow.
