Funding call

The purpose of the call is to build on the combined strengths of academic research groups within the Mexican states and the UK to work collaboratively on research that will address the challenge of abiotic stresses relevant to and in Mexican crops.

This call forms part of BBSRC’s Newton Fund activities and therefore requires the UK component of projects to meet Official Development Assistance (ODA) criteria alongside their scientific objectives.

Up to £3.2 million from BBSRC has been earmarked for this call to support the successful UK applicants, with funding of up to $5 million MXN from Colima, $5 million MXN from Jalisco and $20 million MXN from Sonora, to support successful Mexican applicants in their respective states.
