Funding opportunities

BBSRC Follow-on Fund and super Follow-on Fund: round two

Apply for Follow-on Funding (FoF) to help bridge gaps between early stage bioscience research and innovation with achieving wider commercial, economic and societal benefit.

Standard FoF awards support defined programmes of work up to two years.

Super FoF awards are similar but provide higher levels of funding.

Develop solutions for endemic livestock disease: phase two

Apply for funding to develop research ideas for addressing endemic diseases in livestock.

You must be based at a UK research organisation eligible for BBSRC funding.

This initiative aims to reduce the levels and impact of endemic disease on:

  • UK livestock sector productivity
  • the health and welfare of animals in the UK herd.
