BiophotonicsPlus is a joint initiative of the participating countries and regions to stimulate and fund R&D projects which will translate existing biophotonic technology and methods into appliances and put them into clinical, medical or industrial practice.
BiophotonicsPlus is supported by the European Commission, DG CONNECT under the ERANET-Plus scheme. It is not a FP7 call for proposals but it is implemented under the responsibility of the participating countries and regions. Thus, specific rules for participation apply. The UK is a participating and funding is available to companies only from the TSB for this call. Grant funding up to a maximum of €500k is available to any company.
