Agile BioFoundry announces $3M for 2022 Cooperative Research Solicitation

March 20, 2022 |

In Washington, D.C., the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO)-funded Agile BioFoundry (ABF) consortium is overseeing a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) solicitation for industry and academic partners to utilize ABF capabilities. No less than $3M will be available for this call and they anticipate that approximately 4 projects will be selected with a project duration of up to two years.

This funding opportunity provides resources for partners to collaborate with ABF’s investigators for developing novel microbial hosts; augmenting titer, rate, and yield of bioproducts; and creating new capabilities and approaches to improve the Design-Build-Test-Learn biomanufacturing cycle.

Proposals should identify how projects can leverage the ABF’s capabilities while identifying routes to support BETO goals of supporting sustainable aviation fuel production, decarbonizing industry through low or negative-carbon biochemicals, and decarbonizing transportation.

This opportunity funds competitively-selected agreements between BETO laboratory consortia and partners from industry and academia. For more information, visit the ABF website.
