The Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) announce its participation as a granting agency in the third joint transnational call of ERA-MarineBiotech (ERA-MBT) in the field of marine biotechnology. Including the financial participation of eleven granting agencies from European countries and Canada, this joint call for research projects focuses on the theme "Metagenomic approaches for valorization from the marine environment".
The eleven funding organisations involved in the call expect to support marine biotechnology research with the global amount of 5.8 million €, which represents about 8.26 million CAD. Transnational research consortia from academia and research institutes will be invited to submit proposals in a one-step procedure with the submission deadline by March 7, 2017, through the ERA-MBT Electronic Submission Tool: www.submission-marinebiotech.eu
Interested researchers can already use the partnering platform within the ERA-MBT Electronic Submission Tool to enter offers and requests for project ideas and build a transnational project consortium.
