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.
To sustainably meet the growing global demand for seafood, we need to bring more alternative seafood products to market. That's why GFI's Sustainable Seafood Initiative is launching ATLAS: a tool designed to accelerate alternative seafood development and commercialization.
Alternative feed innovators could help the seafood industry sustainably grow by using their technology to produce alternative seafood products for human consumption.
