Ceres Project Awards at a glance
Who is eligible?
All projects must be led by an academic from a Ceres partner university. If you are a researcher at a Ceres university and have an idea for a project, we want to hear from you. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
What can a Ceres Project Award support?
Ceres Project Awards support translational research projects in plant-related agri-tech (excluding small molecule agrochemicals and plant variety breeding) that have strong commercial potential and have reached at least proof-of-concept stage. Read about our current projects here.
How does it work?
Ceres will provide quick access to milestoned translational investment, typically between £100,000-£250,000 per project, based on a 15 minute pitch to the Ceres Investment Committee. Funding rounds are held quarterly, with decisions on the day.
