The University of York becomes a new Strategic Partner University with the BBSRC

Posted on 7 February 2022

The university will be an additional strategic partner for the next three years.

The University has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with BBSRC to become an Additional Strategic Partner (owing to our significant portfolio in Bioscience for Renewable Resources and Clean Growth related grants) for a three year period covering 2022 – 2025, with the option of a three year extension afterwards.

The overall aim of the Strategic Partnership is to open routes for frequent dialogue in order to better understand shared priorities and promote bidirectional engagement. It is anticipated we would host frequent meetings between the University and BBSRC (including funder visits from a range of BBSRC portfolio teams), have the opportunity to input into future BBSRC schemes, and gain early insights into emerging BBSRC priorities.
