SEED FUND-Projekte

In Phase 1 des NRW-Strategieprojekts BioSC wurden SEED FUND-Projekte gefördert, die zum Ziel hatten, die Tragfähigkeit innovativer, explorativer Projektideen zu prüfen, zu denen es noch keine oder wenig Vorarbeiten gab.

Die Projektthemen mussten so gewählt werden, dass jeweils mindestens zwei BioSC-Forschungsschwerpunkte und zwei BioSC-Partnereinrichtungen beteiligt waren.

Die Laufzeit betrug in der Regel 12 Monate mit einem Budget von maximal 150.000€.
