Thought for Food Initiative

Transdisciplinary research towards more sustainable food systems

Agropolis Fondation, Fondazione Cariplo and Fondation Daniel et Nina Carasso have just launched a call for proposals for the  “Thought for Food Initiative: Transdisciplinary research towards more sustainable food systems” 

 This Call aims to (a) advance understanding of the sustainability of food systems and explore innovative solutions that could help actors involved to achieve it; (b) facilitate the emergence of excellent, new and high-impact research activities; and (c) generate a leverage effect that encourages new collaboration between different types of disciplines with a specific focus on combining natural and social sciences, and that are inclusive of diverse stakeholders.

It will thus support research projects, including those with a capacity building component in any of the following thematic strands (or a combination of both): (a) Diverse agricultural production for more sustainable food systems and diets; and (b) sustainable food processing for more sustainable and healthy diets.

Application for funding under this Call will undergo a “two-stage process.” Applicants will first have to submit a Concept Note (CN) for review. Proponents of selected CN shall be asked to submit a Full Proposal (FP).

The deadline for submission of Concept Note is on 29 February 2016.
