MOSTMICRO-ITQB opens call for Exploratory projects

Filed under:
Proposals should be submitted by 25 January. Each project will receive 25000€ in funding.

ITQB NOVA’s research Unit MOSTMICRO-ITQB has opened a call for exploratory projects in the core areas of the unit, with the goal of obtaining preliminary results to support subsequent funding applications. A total of four projects will be selected for funding with 25000€/each for one year, in a total amount of 100 000 euros.

Projects should develop novel research ideas, which have not yet secured funding, contributing to the understanding of biological processes at the molecular, structural, cellular or population levels, with a focus on microbes important for human health, biotechnology, and the environment. Collaborations with other ITQB NOVA laboratories are allowed.

The proposals will be evaluated by the MOSTMICRO-ITQB Scientific Advisory Board Members, who will be guided by the scientific merit of the project, its feasibility and the capacity of the research team, the added value for the research unit and the potential impact in attracting future external research funding.

The tentative project starting date is March 1st, 2023. Proposals must be submitted by a MOSTMICRO-ITQB Lab Head, and each Lab Head can submit one proposal only. Applications must be submitted by January 25th, 2023 at 17h00 Lisbon time.
