Business Interaction Vouchers

Business Interaction Vouchers

We offer vouchers (up to £10K) to be used to encourage and support collaboration between academics and industrialists within the BBSRC NIBB framework. The collaboration can be any defined piece of work by the academic partner for the industrial partner. These vouchers are intended to help resource small confidence-building measures between an academic partner and an industrial based partner that are likely to lead to:

  • A longer-term relationship
  • Improved interaction
  • New research technology transfer projects

The industrial partner should match the voucher value in cash or in kind.
