ORIED Internal Seed Funding

After the jump, please see information about upcoming and current programs for internal funding. I have confirmed that the FRPD will return in the Spring of 2018. The RFP will be issued then. I also remind you of the Non-laboratory Scholarship/Research Support Program (NSRP).

New Funding Opportunities 7/14/17

After the jump is a list of new funding opportunities from the Research Development Office. From now on, I will not edit this list to single out opportunities that seem best suited to our faculty. While some of these opportunities are clearly outside the realm of most of our expertise, that decision is best left to faculty members to decide, particularly since these are often interdisciplinary programs. If you have any questions, please contact the college research office.

RFA: Accelerating Advances in Animal Welfare DUE FRIDAY July 7

The Research Development Office has been made aware of a limited submission opportunity with a short timeline. Any faculty interested in this opportunity should contact by 4:00 on Friday 7/7.

Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research: Accelerating Advances in Animal Welfare
The objective of this RFA is to stimulate and support innovative research in farm-animal welfare. Research is critical to progress in this field, as changes to animal production practices may impact animal physiology, may require large-scale alterations in animal housing and may have environmental and economic impacts that extend beyond the farm or production facility. FFAR expects the Animal Welfare program to support cross-disciplinary research in animal genetics, behavior, husbandry, physiology, biotechnology, nutrition and other scientific areas.
Internal due date:  Contact by 4:00 on Friday 7/7
Agency due date: August 2, 2017
