The Biosecurity Engagement Program (BEP) supports the two basic types of grants outlined below.

I. Training Support Grants

BEP supports training grants for scientists and key personnel from partner institutions to attend biosafety and biosecurity conferences and training activities, scientific meetings pertaining to infectious disease diagnostics and R&D, and other events relevant to BEP objectives.

II. Funding Opportunities

BEP funding is available in the form of short-term, targeted grants to enable partner institutions to accomplish specific goals towards achieving laboratory biosafety and biosecurity, and sustainability of public and veterinary health networks. Potential areas for support grants include: expert consultation for biocontainment facilities; institutional biosafety & biosecurity training; R&D capacity building in public/veterinary health; and other projects that address BEP objectives.
