is a joint initiative of the participating countries and regions (see header)
to stimulate and fund R&D projects which will translate existing
biophotonic technology and methods into appliances and put them into clinical,
medical or industrial practice.
To this end, up to 15 million EUR government grants will be awarded to
innovative project proposals which involve eligible participants/beneficiaries
from at least two of the participating countries and regions.
The BiophotonicsPlus European Competition for Collaborative R&D Funding has opened on the 1st October 2012 with the launch of the transnational call
for project proposals. The BiophotonicsPlus call announcement provides you all relevant information on the transnational call for proposals.
Additional information can be obtained in the section Eligibility
Rules or by the national and regional Contacts.
Furthermore, you can inform about Events
