United Nations University -- Grants for Capacity Building in Agricultural Research 2013

With funding from the government of Japan, the United Nations University Institute for Sustainability and Peace (UNU-ISP) makes grants for research capacity building in agriculture. The program is "On the Job Research Capacity Building for Sustainable Agriculture in Developing Countries" (OJCB). Grants are proposed and implemented by leading scientists (host scientists) who are engaged in research on sustainable agriculture (including forestry and fisheries) in developing countries, under the responsibility of a host institution. The current priority is research related to climate change mitigation. The host scientists train and supervise one or more younger scientists for one or several months. The grant amount varies with the number of trainees per project. The application deadline is 10 August 2013.
