Collaborative programmes



The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) supports collaborations that connect businesses and knowledge users with the UK’s world-leading research base. We invest to enable thriving collaborations that ensure bioscience research and innovation are at the forefront of opportunities to improve lives and boost economic growth.

Collaborative programmes deliver strategic co-investment in pre-competitive areas with bioscience and biotechnology businesses, as well as businesses in other sectors and industries with relevant interests. This is to ensure academic-business collaborations deliver maximum impact across the UK and globally.
