Biohope announces the success of its application for a European project in the cut-off for the Phase 1 SME-instrument in the H2020 program (score: 14.19).

In the SME-instrument financing scheme, the successful applicants in Phase 1 are the preferential candidates to opt for a Phase 2 project of between €0.5-3M funding.
