Up to $5.7M available through Agile BioFoundry directed funding opportunity

February 23, 2020 |

In California, the Agile BioFoundry (ABF) National Laboratory consortium is overseeing a Directed Funding Opportunity (DFO) to accelerate innovation and adoption of new biomanufacturing approaches, as well as foster growth of the bioeconomy. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO), the DFO is an opportunity for industry partners to utilize ABF capabilities to develop novel microbial hosts and bioproducts, as well as to develop new capabilities and approaches that will advance all aspects of the Design-Build-Test-Learn biomanufacturing cycle.

A DFO funds competitively selected Cooperative Research and Development Agreements between BETO laboratory consortia and partners from industry and academia. This DFO seeks proposals that leverage the unique, world-class capabilities in the ABF consortium and apply these capabilities toward addressing specific challenges identified by applicants from industry and academia.

Up to $5,700,000 will be available. ABF anticipates a total of 8 to 15 projects will be selected, with a project duration of two years.
