Biofilms ICURe Sprint

The Biofilms ICURe Sprint is an accelerated programme of support for teams from NBIC partner universities with commercially promising biofilm innovations.

Funded by NBIC and delivered by SETsquared, the Biofilms ICURe Sprint is an accelerated version of the Innovation to Commercialisation of University Research (ICURe) programme, dedicated solely to research teams developing biofilm innovations.

The programme will support teams led by university Early Career Researchers/Entrepreneurial Lead/post-doctoral researcher or PhD researcher to determine whether there is an international biofilms market for products or services that utilise their research, science, or technology. Up to £20k of funding is available to ‘get out of the lab’ and validate these commercially promising ideas in the marketplace.

It will leverage an ecosystem of businesses, investors, corporates, and translational research centres to deliver this intensive market discovery programme in approximately two months.

Applications for the Biofilms ICURe Sprint programme close at 9am on Wednesday 20 April.
