20 June 2023, Sweden: Lantmännen Research Foundation’s annual call for proposals opens today, Tuesday 20th of June. The Foundation welcomes project applications from researchers within the focus areas Agriculture & machinery, Food & health and Bioenergy & green Materials.
Since 1986, the Lantmännen Research Foundation has invested in research throughout the agri value chain, from field to fork. The goal is increased productivity, food security and robust food systems, as well as a reduced environmental impact from farming, aiming for climate neutrality by 2050.
This year’s call opens earlier than previous years, on Tuesday 20th of June, with an application period up until the 2nd of October 2023. The Foundation’s specific priorities lie within three focus areas – Agriculture & machinery, Food & health and Bioenergy & green materials.
“We are looking for new knowledge and innovations that can contribute to a more sustainable and profitable agriculture and food production. The solutions to these future challenges can only be found in collaboration. We look forward to applications that will contribute to the transition,” says Helena Fredriksson, Head of Research at Lantmännen Research Foundation.
The Research Foundation focuses primarily on practically applicable research.
