£1.5M funding available to address challenges in sustainable intensification of agriculture in the UK
BBSRC and NERC invite applications to attend an interactive strategic workshop to develop proposals for research and research translation projects.
The Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) are inviting applications to attend an interactive strategic workshop (Sandpit) to develop proposals for research and research translation projects. Successful projects will bring together multidisciplinary teams to address challenges facing the sustainable intensification of agriculture in the UK.
The projects will be supported through ¬£1.5m funding via the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Innovation Club (SARIC) which funds projects within the themes of: resilient and robust crop and livestock production systems and predictive capabilities for sustainable agriculture.

The Sandpit will commence with presentations from the industrial members of SARIC to stimulate the development of project ideas. Sandpit participants will develop and present a project idea in a multidisciplinary team to an expert panel on the final day of the Sandpit. Full proposals will be invited for submission through Je-S in November 2017. Reasonable costs for travel and accommodation will be met for participants.
The application deadline for the Sandpit events is 11 September 2017, 4pm.
