Description

BBSRC is pleased to announce a call for collaborative proposals to address research challenges relating to the sustainable intensification of agricultural systems in developing countries.

The aim of this call is to enhance livelihoods through interdisciplinary research to improve agricultural systems by understanding, at multiple scales, interactions between the biology of crops and farmed animals (including aquaculture), their environments and management.

The call is funded from the UK government’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). As well as being scientifically excellent, research supported under it must meet the criteria for classification of expenditure as Official Development Assistance (ODA). Up to £8 million is available, subject to the quality of proposals received.
