BioInnovation Institute (BII) is an international commercial foundation with a non-profit objective supported by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. BII operates an incubator to accelerate world-class life science innovation that drives the development of new solutions through the creation of life science start-ups for the benefit of people and society. BII offers help to early-stage projects and start-ups in health tech, bio-industrials and therapeutics through their various programs. They can provide funding up to 2.5m euros. They are open for applications twice a year. September is the next deadline for applications.
