We are pleased to announce that the INC is launching, for the first time, an Annual Call for Scientific Proposals.

The objective of this grant is to fund projects aimed at promoting research that may contribute to improve how nuts and dried fruits are grown and processed in a safe and sustainable way.

Objectives:
  • To analyze and report on the sustainability of the nut and dried fruit industry; to highlight issues for consideration and suggest a number of actions that may contribute to the overall sustainability of the industry, with specific references to environmental, social and economic sustainability.
  • To provide a scientific basis for best practices across one of the two priority areas: sustainability and/or food safety.
 Priorities:
  • Sustainability: Production practices that are environmentally friendly, economically profitable and socially equitable.
  • Food safety: Innovations to improve food safety practices at any stage of the supply chain.
€150,000 are available for the 2020 Grant.
