In phase 1 of the NRW Strategy Project BioSC, SEED FUND projects were funded that aimed at verifying the viability of innovative, explorative project ideas with relevance to bioeconomy where there was no or few preliminary work.
Project topics had to be selected in such a way that in each project at least two BioSC research areas and two BioSC affiliates were involved.
The duration was usually 12 months with a budget of a maximum of €150,000.
