August 7, 2019

BBSRC and NERC invite applications for projects of up to 22 months in duration to translate existing research into practical application for the purpose of addressing current food security development and environmental challenges related to sustainable enhancement of food production. Projects must work with a country on the Development Assistance Committee list of Official Development Assistance recipients from within in the Sub-Saharan Africa, Southern Asia or South-eastern Asia regions.

This joint BBSRC-NERC translation call aims to increase and accelerate the uptake and impact of BBSRC and/or NERC funded research into practical application. The call will support multidisciplinary translation projects focused on a crop, livestock or aquaculture food production system, which are balanced across the remit of both BBSRC and NERC, and which seek to translate existing research in order to address global food production sustainability, and food security, challenges.

Projects should be impact-focused, translating excellent research into measurable real-world outcomes to raise economic and/or societal prosperity in a DAC listed country in the Sub-Saharan Africa, South-Eastern Asia or Southern Asia regions as their primary objective. Projects must work in collaboration with in-country users, who should be fully engaged in the conception and design of the project at the earliest possible stage, to ensure that the outcomes of the project have appropriate uptake and impact, and that benefits arising from the project are sustainable beyond the lifetime of the project. Project outcomes should be realized as tangible and demonstrable economic and/or welfare benefits to the in-country user(s) with the potential for scalable impacts at the local, national and/or international level.

Apply by September 18. More information here.
