The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research welcomes concepts from individuals and groups with innovative ideas for scientific solutions to pressing challenges in food and agriculture.  
FFAR is building a research framework within seven cross-cutting Challenge Areas. Expert and stakeholder community input will help define and develop the projects (Grants, Prizes, and contracts) launched within those Challenge Areas. While the Foundation is open to all opportunities to fund innovation in food and agriculture, strong preference will be given to ideas that fall within one of our seven Challenge Areas.

Offer input on future FFAR programming by submitting a research concept within the Foundation's Challenge Areas. 

FFAR will consider concepts offered here for development into open solicitations (Requests for Application or Challenge Prizes).

Pitch a research concept that falls outside the Foundation's Challenge Areas.

Please note: Strong preference is currently being given to research programs that address one of the Foundation's current Challenge Areas
