Boost Fund 2.0 projects since 2022

In the funding instrument BOOST FUND 2.0, successful content-related developments and topics in the BioSC (e.g. from the FocusLabs or Seed Fund 2.0 projects) are to be further developed. The Boost Fund 2.0 of Phase 3 is based on the BOOST FUND tested and successfully implemented in Phase 1, adapted to the orientation of the RESEARCH project part in Phase 3 (-> higher number of integrating research projects such as FocusLabs, smaller than these in terms of budget). The projects are open-topic and should take up concepts in science and research in the sense of a bottom-up approach.

The duration of the BOOST FUND 2.0 projects is up to 36 months with a maximum budget of 400,000€/year.
