Funding call

BBSRC and NERC invite applications for projects of up to 22 months in duration to translate existing research into practical application for the purpose of addressing current food security development and environmental challenges related to sustainable enhancement of food production. Projects must work with a country on the Development Assistance Committee list of Official Development Assistance recipients from within in the Sub-Saharan Africa, Southern Asia or South-eastern Asia regions.

This joint BBSRC-NERC translation call aims to increase and accelerate the uptake and impact of BBSRC and/or NERC funded research into practical application. The call will support multidisciplinary translation projects focussed on a crop, livestock or aquaculture food production system, which are balanced across the remit of both BBSRC and NERC, and which seek to translate existing research in order to address global food production sustainability, and food security, challenges.
