BII & Science Prize for Innovation

Closing Date: 01/11/2021

Prize presented to recognise bold researchers who are asking fundamental questions at the intersection of the life sciences and entrepreneurship.

The BioInnovation Institute Foundation (BII) is an international non-profit foundation established in 2018. BII is supported by the Novo Nordisk Foundation (NNF – Novo Nordisk Fonden). BII operates an incubator to accelerate world-class life science innovation that drives the development of new solutions by early-stage life science start-ups for the benefit of people and society.

The BII & Science Prize for Innovation is presented to recognise bold researchers who are asking fundamental questions at the intersection of the life sciences and entrepreneurship. The prize will be awarded annually to one young scientist based on work done in the past three years. The prize is initiated though a collaboration between BII and Science, published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

Successful applicants might have made significant advances in producing results that were protected as intellectual property and licensed to a commercial entity (for example, proprietary drugs and biologics, diagnostics, therapeutic interventions, health care information technology, or new solutions to biobased production of fuels, chemicals and foods).

The prize is awarded for outstanding research performed by the applicant as described in a 1,000-word essay.
