Advance Notice for RFA: MSU/GCFSI Food Systems Innovation Grants
GCFSI intends to issue a Request for Application (RFA) in April, 2014. The goal of this RFA will be to create innovation in the global food system by finding, incubating and evaluating new and potentially disruptive knowledge and technology based solutions to development challenges, with an emphasis on problems deriving from population growth, climate change and urbanization.
GCFSI is one of the eight development labs funded by USAID under the Higher Education Solutions Network (HESN) program.
Applications that support GCFSI's mission by creating innovations in the following will be accepted:
Megatrend 1: Population Growth, Climate Change and Pressure on the Land
Megatrend 2: Rapid Urbanization and Transformation of Food Systems
Megatrend 3: Evolution in Skills in the Food System
The full Request for Applications will be issued in April 2014 and it will detail the innovation arenas that GCFSI has selected for proposals. Please do not consider this pre-solicitation announcement as the RFA and do not submit proposals until the formal RFA is released.
