BARD Announces New RFP for MARD Facilitating Grants
BARD announces a new RFP for MARD (Middle East Research and Development) Facilitating Grants.
The purpose of the Facilitating Grant program is to enable small research groups from the Middle East region and the US, to jointly prepare a detailed research proposal which will be submitted by the research team for funding to other international granting agencies.
The proposal may include a request to fund a preliminary research, if required, in order to strengthen the team’s proposal when applying to the international granting agency.
Grants are for a maximum of 1 year and $50,000 (please see budget options in our website). The deadline for submission is July 1, 2013
The research team should consist of representatives from The Palestinian Authority (PA), Jordan, Israel and the US. Investigators from other Arab nations such as Egypt, Morocco, etc., may also participate when preparing a proposal to be submitted to MERC, USAID, DFG or similar funding agencies that require participation of such nations.
MARD encourages FG proposals related to animal and plant stress physiology under extreme weather conditions and global warming, to ensure safe and productive agricultural systems.
