In beLAB2122 we are looking for breakthrough concepts that can form the basis of a new spinout. We welcome ad-hoc applications, as well as applications in response to our regular specific calls. Interested academics should first talk to a member of the technology transfer office (TTO) of the respective institution and the beLAB2122 Expert in Residence (EIR), see contacts page, to understand if the proposed idea meets the beLAB2122 criteria.
Applications may be for up to USD 1.5 m in total (amount will be converted to EUR at current exchange rate), with funding split between the PI’s lab and the industrial partner Evotec, with the split depending on the project’s scientific requirements.
The application form is available from the TTO (see contacts page) and should be submitted upon recommendation by the EIR and following prior review and sign off by the institutions’ TTO.
Award applications will be reviewed quarterly by the beLAB2122 Joint Steering Committee (JSC), drawn together from representatives of all the parties and will require an in-person pitch.
Project funding is conditional on the acceptance of the beLAB2122 terms and conditions.
The next Joint Steering Committee meeting will be held in September 2021.
