Grants to USA researchers at qualified institutions for research projects in eligible subject areas. Funding is intended to support new ideas and initiatives that will impact areas such as sustainable water management, soil health, and animal systems. The purpose of the program is to launch new faculty members into successful scientific careers in food and agriculture.
The New Innovator in Food and Agriculture Research Award seeks to promote career advancement of highly creative and promising new scientists who intend to make a long-term career commitment to research in food and agriculture and bring innovative, ground-breaking research initiatives and thinking to bear on problems facing food and agriculture.
Within the scope of the New Innovator Program, investigators will have the freedom to explore new avenues of inquiry that arise during their research. Therefore, FFAR is interested in the program of research to be explored and its impact as opposed to a list of very specific aims. It is expected that through this program investigators will have the ability to pursue highly creative ideas, to firmly establish their early lines of research into important food and agriculture scientific areas, and provide stability in funding during their critical early career years by reducing the time spent on writing applications.
FFAR anticipates funding projects in the following FFAR Challenge Areas:
