Mapping the agri-food system
We are delighted to announce two exciting new opportunities from the AFN Network+
AFN Network+ Call for Scoping Study Grant Proposals
We invite you to apply for funding to carry out work which supports our mission of reaching net zero through the agri-food sector. The funded projects will involve at least one non-academic food system stakeholder in a meaningful way, and be interdisciplinary in nature. Up to £350,000 will be awarded in total. 15 projects will be funded for up to £10,000 for a maximum 12 month period. A further 4 projects will be funded for up to £50,000 for a maximum 24 month period. Applications open on 12 May and close on 6 July 2023. Projects will begin 1 October 2023. Further details here.
AFN Network+ Crucible Event
Are you passionate about the role of the agri-food sector in helping get to net zero? Do you have a question you want to answer, but need to find the right people to work with to address it? We are looking to bring together people working in the food system and academics at universities and other higher education institutions to forge new collaborations.
The AFN Network+ Crucible is a two-day workshop in Bristol on 21 and 22 June. You will spend two days immersed in professionally-facilitated brainstorming and development of new project ideas, culminating in pitching your project for the chance to be awarded funding. Even if you are not one of the lucky teams selected at the Crucible, you will have spent time working on the application form for the Call for Scoping Study Grant Proposals, which closes two weeks after the Crucible. Applications to attend close on 21 May 2023. Further details here.
