Welcome to EuroTransBio

EuroTransBio (ETB) has been an international funding initiative supported by European program owners from 2004 to 2018. It has established itself as the preferred funding instrument for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), collaborating in the area of modern biotechnology. The mission of ETB was to foster the competitiveness of the European biotechnology industry by supporting research intensive SMEs and their strategic partner with the aim of achieving a thriving European biotechnology industry.

From 2006 to 2018 ETB has launched 13 calls for innovative research proposals. During this period 168 cooperative R&D&I projects has been recommended for funding for a total of € 278 Mio project costs. The project scopes spanned from health (red biotech, 73%) to agro-food (green biotech, 11%), industrial (grey biotech, 13%) and marine (blue biotech, 3%).

After the 13th call the program owners decided to stop their activities in this funding initiative. There will be no further ETB call for proposals in the future.
