New for 2012-2013: The Regional Development Grant Program will have three funding cycles. See preproposal deadlines below.
The North Carolina Biotechnology Center’s Regional Development Grant (RDG) supports economic development initiatives in the life sciences. The goal of the program is to build capacity through collaborative projects and to provide a foundational resource for economic growth that the community could not have achieved without NCBIOTECH funding.
The program is open to a broad range of project ideas within targeted focus areas. Further information about the RDG program and focus areas can be found at www.ncbiotech.org/rdg.
• Up to $75,000 can be requested.
• A 50% match is required.
• Projects must be completed within a 12-month period.
• Preproposals are required.
