To what entities is a BiOS license available?
The BiOS license is available to for-profits and non-profits. For-profits are being asked to provide partial support of the costs of providing services such as the BioForge, in which improved protocols, descriptions of improved materials, implementation and regulatory data are being supplied and documented, and costs of providing materials and knowhow to truly enable use.
Support requested from for-profits based in non-OECD countries is oriented more to in-kind provision than financial support.
The BiOS license is available to entities along any portion of the value creation chain, including research institutions, commercializers, entities such as hospitals or landowners providing clinical or field test data, end users.
