SFN Proof of Concept Call 2021
Amount: Up to £25k
Deadline: Monday 1st November 2021, midday BST
The STFC Food Network+ (SFN) invites proposals for Proof-of-Concept proposals that either build on the previous work undertaken by SFN Scoping Projects or that pursue new research applying STFC capabilities for use in food research and industry. Proposals must demonstrate significant impact potential (either via follow-on funding, social/environmental impact, and/or commercial application).
The projects can be up to 12 months in length and must be completed before the end of March 2023
These projects must be relevant to the objectives of the STFC Food Network+:
We aim to fund between 3-4 PoC projects for the 2021 call.

UK projects: the lead party must be a University or eligible research institute.
International projects: any organisation can apply to be the lead party on international projects (lead applicants must be based in ODA recipient countries in Africa or Asia)
