Information event on GO-Bio initial - Module 1 (in 🇬🇧)

InnoDom, Weyertal 109, Floor 1 Room 3, 50931 Cologne &Online

The Go-Bio Initial funding program from BMBF is an attractive funding for young researchers to fund their own position and explore valorisation of their research. The application requires a short 5-pager in which the idea and its innovation potential needs to be explained.

With our Go-Bio Initial Booster, we support you with your application. The Booster consists of 2 modules, which can be attended separately (no registration required).

Module 1 - Information Event

On October, 24th, 12 – 1 pm, we will have an information event where we will introduce the Go-Bio Initial programme together with Prof. Dr. Entschladen from Provendis. We will also have a researcher of the University of Cologne on-site, who has already received the funding, and will give insights about the application process.

The event will take place on-site at Innodom Cologne, but will also be streamed via Zoom Webinar, for those who cannot attend in person.

For everyone being on-site, there will be the possibility to have short 1:1 slots to discuss subject-specific questions.

No registration is needed.

More Information about Go-Bio Initial

🔬 What is GO-Bio Initial?

The GO-Bio initial funding initiative supports the identification and further development of new ideas or early research approaches with recognizable innovation potential. The aim of the program is to enable and facilitate the transfer of promising ideas into products.

Normally, a funding requires a very concrete concept for implementation or extensive preliminary data. With GO-Bio Initial, you need nothing but an innovative idea.

💡 Why Choose GO-Bio Initial?

Traditional funding demands detailed plans from day one. At the start of your innovation journey, you often have nothing more than a visionary idea. That is where GO-Bio comes in. Here, the initial phase is already being funded, even without patented tech, because the path to success is not always clear from the very beginning. GO-Bio Initial funding is provided over 3 years. In the first year, a sum of up to 100,000EUR can be awarded, and in the second and third year up to 1,000,000EUR. The funding also includes, among other things, further qualification, travel and personnel costs.

👩‍🔬 Who's Eligible?

If you're a Master's candidate, a PhD student, or a postdoc at the advanced stage of your research project, GO-Bio initial is your platform. Those at the crossroads of their careers are encouraged through innovations in the areas of "therapeutic agents," "diagnostic reagents," "platform technologies," and "research tools."

🌟 How Can Our Go-Bio Initial Booster Support You?

Our focus: turning your life sciences research into commercial successes. In our Go-Bio Initial Booster consisting of an information session and a workshop, we will be on hand to help you bridge the gap between research and transfer. During these dates, we provide advice and support in the application process.
