Scientists at NH colleges and universities may apply for grants for research projects, collaborations with industry, and the use of laboratory instruments to advance knowledge of the design and manufacture of biomaterials.
The NH Center for Multiscale Modeling and Manufacturing of Biomaterials (NH BioMade) Seed Funding Opportunity provides up to $50,000 for faculty and research associates at NH universities and colleges to conduct pilot projects or collaborations with industry. Up to $5,000 is available for the use of the equipment at the University of NH Instrumentation Center.
The deadlines are Jan. 4 for letters of intent and Jan. 18 for applications. For more information, visit nhepscor.org/nh-biomade-seed-funding-opportunities.
NH BioMade also offers grants to educators to develop and implement curriculum and training enhancements to better prepare students to enter a career or academic pathway in biomaterials or bio-related advanced manufacturing. That program has a rolling deadline. For more information, visit nhepscor.org/education-RFP.
NH BioMade is led by the University of NH, with research partners at Dartmouth College and Keene State College, and workforce development partners at the Community College System of NH and biotechnology and biomanufacturing companies. NH BioMade is supported by a National Science Foundation EPSCoR award (#1757371).
