Beaufort Marine Biodiscovery Project
The research institutions NUIG, QUB and UCC together with the Marine Institute (MI) are collaborating as the Irish Marine Biodiscovery Research Group. This all-island consortium has been awarded funding of €7.25 million under the Marine Institute Beaufort Award, to develop and implement the Marine Biodiscovery Research Project over the period 2008-2015.
The Marine Institute Beaufort Award for Marine Biodiscovery Research allows the establishment of the initial research capacity for the realisation of the objectives of Ireland’s National Marine Biotechnology Programme.
This programme, which is now called Marine Biotechnology Ireland, is an important component of Sea Change - the Marine Knowledge Research and Innovation Strategy for Ireland 2007-2013, which identified marine biodiscovery and biotechnology as areas of development for the country.
