SEED FUND 3.0 projects since 2022

The SEED FUND projects have proven to be a good format in phases 1 and 2. They offer the opportunity to develop new and explorative research topics on concrete issues within the overall concept of the BioSC. The projects are open-topic and are intended to take up concepts in science and research in the sense of a bottom-up approach.

The duration of the SEED FUND - Projects is 12 - 24 months with a budget of 200.000 €.
