BIST Ignite: Call for Collaborative Seeding Projects

The BIST Ignite program is a mechanism to foster multidisciplinary research among the BIST community.

Its goals are to promote the initiation of new collaborations among the BIST researchers, facilitating the exchange of knowledge among different scientific fields and exploring new approaches to address complex questions.

The program is based on a progressive and competitive two stage call. This is the first and seeding stage from which 5 projects will be selected by an external scientific committee to be funded with 20.000 € each and researchers will have 8 months to develop their proposed ideas.

The projects must involve at least two groups working in different BIST centers and have a multidisciplinary approach to solve new or unsolved questions, promoting the cross-fertilization across disciplines, and providing new insights to give an impulse to further push the collaboration forward.
