The call invites consortia of research institutes and other organisations (both public and private) in both the Netherlands and Low and Middle-Income Countries to submit joint research proposals that respond to the need for sustainable solutions for global food security.

Who can apply? The current call for proposals invites consortia of research institutes and other organisations (both public and private) in both the Netherlands and in LMICs to submit joint research and innovation proposals. The call specifically seeks to involve Dutch for-profit companies in joint research.
