Genopole Young Biotech Award 2016: D-33 before the closing date for applications!

Start
Intended to reward biotechnological innovation (excluding healthcare), the Genopole Young Biotech Award offers a passport to the future by allowing the winner to set up in France's largest biocluster, and by offering him or her a first prize worth €100,000.
Project leaders have one month left to register and apply.
 
The purpose of the Biotechnology for the Environment, Agronomy and Industry Business Competition, organized by Genopole® at the Evry-Corbeil site, is to encourage, support and enhance the value of innovative projects and company start-ups in the field of environmental, agronomic and/or industrial biotechnology (excluding the medical sector).
Innovation is understood here as a new and inventive technology, process or service that must be economically applied.
And biotechnology is the use of knowledge of the biological and natural workings of living organisms to produce goods and services.
 
Applications must present a project for the creation of an enterprise or innovative activity of a young enterprise (date of creation less than 3 years). If it is a continuation of an existing innovative project, the applicant must explain as precisely as possible how hosting at Genopole® and obtaining support would support the innovative nature of its previous and current experiments.
 
The winner receives a prize worth €100,000 and joins the Genopole® biocluster.
