🔬 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."
