Learn how GFI and partners are scaling the science that we need around plant-based, cultivated, and fermentation-derived seafood to improve our oceans' health.
Alt protein science
GFI awards $5 million to boost research into alternative proteins — a powerful and scalable climate solution
GFI’s Competitive Research Grant program provides catalytic seed funding to accelerate alternative protein R&D and unlock the climate benefits on offer. But serious public investment is critical to achieving a net-zero, climate-resilient world.
As the world inches closer to 2050, the deadline to meet net-zero emissions, the alternative protein industry needs scientists and students to help decarbonize and future-proof the global food system.
Alternative proteins are critical to a biologically diverse, net-zero emissions world. Additional funding can help us deploy this powerful decarbonization tool.
Research can propel alternative protein innovation and accelerate the shift to a more sustainable food system. Mapping the funding landscape can reveal critical opportunities to bolster innovation.
As cultivated meat gains momentum, we’re shining a light on some of the pioneers and milestones that have helped the industry transform from a sci-fi hypothesis to a blooming innovative sector.
GFI’s 2021 Competitive Research Grant RFP is designed to catalyze whole-cut alt protein meat products—a critical step on the journey toward a safe and sustainable global food system.
