BBSRC-Ireland (SFI) joint funding of research (September 2016 call)

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) have agreed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to welcome, encourage and support applications that may cut across their national boundaries and involve international collaborative teams, led by researchers from the UK and Republic of Ireland (ROI).




21 Sep 2016


Proposals approved for funding will be jointly supported by BBSRC and SFI up to maximum of

£2,000,000 funds applicable to the BBSRC budget

€500,000 direct costs applicable to the The Republic of Ireland (ROI) budget.

All research grants and fellowship applications are costed on the basis of full economic costs
(fEC). Research Councils provide funding on the basis of 80% of fEC. The organisation must agree to find the balance of fEC for the project from other resources.

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
