BBSRC Strategic Longer and Larger grants: Frontier bioscience

The 2018/19 strategic Longer and Larger (sLoLa) call invites proposals focused on frontier bioscience: leading-edge discovery research that addresses significant fundamental questions in bioscience.

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) is seeking to support cutting edge, innovative and ambitious research that addresses key fundamental questions in bioscience.




22 Jun 2018


The indicative budget for this call is up to £16 million, subject to the quality of applications received.

Proposals must be over £2 million [100% full economic costs (FEC) project value] and can be up to five years in duration.

The BBSRC anticipates awarding 3-5 sLoLa grants in the 2018/19 call.


22 June 2018: Registration deadline
12 July 2018: Outline application deadline
16 January 2019: Full application (invite only) deadline
It is anticipated that awarded grants will start in late 2019.

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.
