10 African Countries Eligible for Grants from Dutch Applied Research Fund

http://l.caast-net-plus.org/j0

Research organisations from Benin, Burundi, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Sudan, and Uganda, working in a partnership with at least one other organisation, are eligible to apply for grants of between €50,000 and €300,000 from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research’s Food and Business Applied Research Fund. Says the NWO website: “Research projects should evolve through co-creation: a concerted effort of practitioners and research and/or higher education organisations. Projects should contribute to improving sustainable and inclusive access to sufficient and healthy food and an inclusive business climate for the most vulnerable people in the Dutch partner countries. Projects must show applicability of the newly developed or adjusted knowledge, insights, technologies, tools, products, services or policies. Since a strong local/regional private sector is important in reaching local/regional food security, research projects that aim at improving local/regional entrepreneurship are included.” Applications close on 5 July 2016 and 6 December 2016. Up to fifteen projects may be granted. [Image credit: NWO]
