IACCP seeks to provide small grants to support cross-cultural researchers at all levels.

OPRA Research Grants

Modern physics is the foundation upon which many engineering achievements were based upon in the 20th century. Our everyday digital life serves as ongoing proof of its power. We believe that strong physics must rely on experimental findings and unshaken mathematical treatment. When experimental findings are not aligned with a physical theory it is an excellent opportunity to improve, modify or replace the theory.

General Reguest for Proposals: Environmental Research & Education Foundation

The sustainability movement has reached the business models of nearly every industry in the United States, and many companies, municipalities and states have set aggressive sustainability goals that include how waste streams are being managed.  The EREF Board of Directors has set an initiative to ensure research funded reflects EREF’s long-term strategic plan to address all areas of integrated solid waste management, with a strong focus towards research that increased sustainable solid waste management practices.

Metagenomic Next Generation Sequencing to Detect, Identify, and Characterize Pathogens

This Grand Challenges (GC) award will support travel and accommodation of grantees to San Francisco for training at the CZ Biohub, and the following items: 1) a sequencer suitable for the global health environment[1], 2) a dedicated sequencing technician, and 3) sequencing reagents for the duration of the award. CZ Biohub and CZI training will include pilot analysis of samples from their home region during hands-on, intensive mentoring.

Digital Health Services for Pregnant Women to Support Antenatal Risk Stratification in Sub-Saharan Africa

The Gates Foundation seeks patient-facing digital health services for pregnant women that have been developed and are actively being provided in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). It will consider proposals for services that can support or contribute to our ARS vision via digital applications. Types of services that would be considered include:

Submit a Research Concept: Research concepts that address pressing challenges in the food and agriculture industry

Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) funds food and agriculture science that addresses large-scale challenges to develop actionable knowledge and solutions. It funds research focusing on our cross-cutting Challenge Areas. Another important aspect of its grants is the public-private partnerships. Some funding opportunities require applicants and grantees to secure matching funds. In other cases, it secures matching funds before announcing the opportunity. Please consider potential matching funders when proposing a research concept.

Research grants for the 2022 Agricultural Greater Good Initiative
