The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research seeks to address pressing food and agriculture challenges through innovative research and partnerships. The Foundation’s current research framework is composed of existing programs and seven priority Challenge Areas. We are currently accepting research concepts within the Challenge Areas here. Research concepts outside the Challenge Areas will be considered for development into a project proposal only under extraordinary circumstances. Upon review of the concept for alignment with FFAR’s program development criteria, FFAR may respond in one of the following ways:
» Express interest in the concept and work with you to develop a formal proposal.
» Incorporate the concept into a program that is under development.
» Should the FFAR staff determine that the research concept does not align with its current priorities and available funding, the concept will remain in our database for future consideration. As potential opportunities arise, we may connect you with groups pursuing similar goals. If you would prefer that your interest in a particular area remain confidential, you may opt out below.

Note: This is not a grant application, but rather a way for FFAR to receive concepts to be considered for development into a research proposal. Receipt of a research concept does not bind FFAR to launching programs in that area nor entitle the submitter to receive funds from FFAR should a program be launched in that area. For further details regarding the process by which FFAR receives, evaluates, and develops concepts, please visit this page. Should the FFAR staff be interested in discussing a research concept, we typically respond within 30 days.
