NC-213, a multi-state research project comprised of engineers, entomologists, plant pathologists, grain/food scientists and economists from leading U.S. Land Grant universities, USDA-ARS research centers and private industry, is has requested members to submit research proposals to the Andersons Research Grant Program for 2011.
The Andersons Research Grant Program will provide research funding within the scope of the multistate research project entitled "Marketing and Delivery of Quality Grains and BioProcess Coproducts". Successful proposals will receive up to $25,000 per year for two years.
Proposals submitted to the Andersons Research Grant Program must address one or more of the following NC-213 objectives:
- To characterize quality attributes and develop systems to measure quality of cereals, oilseeds, and bioprocess coproducts;
- To develop methods to maintain quality, capture value, and preserve food safety at key points in the harvest to end product value chain; and,
- To quantify and disseminate the impact of market-chain technologies on providing high value, food-safe, and bio-secure grains for global markets and bioprocess industries.
Proposals must be submitted no later than Thursday, Sept. 1 2011.
