ICGEB offers a dedicated source of funding for outstanding projects in ICGEB Member States, with the promoting collaboration, training of young scientists and development of research facilities.
Funding opportunities are made available through the Collaborative Research Programme (CRP) - ICGEB Research Grants, which is a dedicated source of funding aimed at financing projects addressing original scientific problems of particular relevance for the host country and of regional interest.
Established in 1988, the programme aims to stimulate collaborative research in Member States and with the ICGEB Component laboratories, to promote training of young scientists and to facilitate the creation of appropriate research facilities.
The programme provides support for research projects in basic science, human healthcare, industrial and agricultural biotechnology and bioenergy.
A call for applications is launched yearly.
