What is the purpose of the program?

The goal of each Bio Studio project is to create a viable startup by the end of the program that can raise seed or Series A financing.

What program support do I receive?

As part of the Bio Studio program, you will receive help with scientific maturation, development of IP, entrepreneurial training, extensive in-kind partner services and preparation for fundraising.

Who is the program for?

Established PIs with at least three years of experience of leading an independent research group from across the world with a strong academic track record and demonstrated experience in translating research and/or commercialization.

What funding does the Bio Studio grant come with?

Bio Studio projects are expected to run for up to 3 years and the funding is awarded in sequential 1-year in-kind grants of up to DKK 5M pending on annual approval of extension based on the milestone plan.

What are the terms for the funding?

Funded projects will be incubated at BII’s state-of-the-art facilities in central Copenhagen. PIs themselves are not expected to relocate to BII and will remain at their host institution. Any IP generated during the Bio Studio project will remain with the PI’s host institution or with the inventors depending on appropriate legislation.
