The Environmental Biology Network (EBNet), a BBSRC/EPSRC NIBB, is a free-to-join network open to all. One of 6 new Phase II Networks in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (NIBB), we exist to network individuals working across all areas, including industry, government, regulators, social enterprises and community groups alongside academics from all disciplines and interests. Join us at the start of this 5 year network to keep up-to-date with the latest developments and opportunities in your field.

We plan to provide UK ECRs with funding via travel bursaries, secondments, industry placements and training, both in the UK and overseas - and our FREE annual ECR conference, a relaxed event run by ECRs for ECRs. Our dedicated research flexible funds encompass Interdisciplinary Translational Research (ITR) projects - up to £100,000 (academic only) and Industry Support Grants (ISG) - up to £10,000 (academia/industry match funded). Be the first to be notified of calls.
The aim of EBNet is to develop and strengthen links between advanced molecu-lar and applied microbiology, engineering and systems optimisation to maximise the societal impacts and benefits. Its overall goal is to take fundamental discov-ery science towards practical application in key areas of the human/environment interface.
