USA, Washington, DC. Due to gifts from two donors, the Good Food Institute (GFI) has launched a $3 mill. competitive grant program to support open-source plant-based and clean meat research.
The GFI is a non-profit organization who works with scientists, investors and entrepeneurs to make clean meat and plant-based alternatives to animal products. Its their view that plant-based and clean meat research have huge potential to catalyze the evolution of the food system, solve critical global issues, and lead to rewarding careers for scientists working in this space.
The GFI promotes food innovation and markets to feed the world’s growing population with safe and healthy foods produced through systems that do not negatively impact people, animals, and the planet. They focus on accelerating research, development, and the path to competitive commercialization for plant-based and clean meat.
The Science & Technology Team catalyzes research and development to improve the quality, price, and accessibility of plant-based and clean meat. In support of this effort, they are launching a competitive research grant program to fund research addressing critical science and technology barriers facing the plant-based and clean meat industries.
Applications from any sector – including academia, government, industry, and nonprofits – from around the world will be considered. GFI’s foundational mission is to support all plant-based and clean meat industries. Research funded by this program will be made available and accessible to that benefit.
