The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology has opened the 2nd annual BIST Ignite Call today, October 20, 2017.
The goals of the BIST Ignite Program 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.
This year, five new collaborative research ideas will be selected by a scientific committee to be funded with 20.000€ each and given eight months to be developed. After this eight months, two of the five projects will be chosen to continue their projects with an additional 50.000€ each.
All details and application instructions can be found on the 2017 BIST Ignite Call page.
We encourage all research teams at the BIST centres (CRG, IBEC, ICFO, ICIQ, ICN2, IFAE, IRB Barcelona) to learn more about this opportunity and consider applying.
