In phase 1 of the NRW Strategy Project BioSC, BOOST FUND projects were funded that aimed at further developing innovative research topics with a potential to significantly contribute to bioeconomic questions.
Project topics had to be selected in such a way that each project involved at least two BioSC research areas and two BioSC affiliates.
The duration was usually 24 months with a budget of a maximum of €800,000.
