Description

Because alternative protein research does not typically reside within existing academic disciplines, it can be difficult and time-intensive for researchers to identify relevant funding opportunities. GFI has developed a research funding database featuring filtering capabilities for narrowing available opportunities by research topic. GFI will continuously refine and expand this resource to include additional funding opportunities from around the world and more advanced search capabilities. We welcome contributions to the database here.
