Funding Opportunities

Health Research and Dissemination

Since INC launched the first Call in 2013, it has awarded more than 1.55 million Euros to the research on and dissemination of the health effects of nut and dried fruit consumption.
 
The International Nut and Dried Fruit Council (INC) launches annually the Call for Research Projects and the Call for Promotion and Dissemination Projects. Both Calls are open for public and private institutions, as well as not-for-profit organizations, and are usually launched between October and December, with due date for submission January 31 or February 28 of the following year. The Guidelines and Application Form are posted online, in this site.

For information about the Call for Research and the Call for Promotion and Dissemination Projects, please contact Ms. Maria Pascual at maria.pascual@nutfruit.org.
 
In addition, INC offers the “Nuts for Gifts” Global Dissemination Program to promote nuts and dried fruits worldwide under a new concept: nuts and dried fruits as a top-of-mind gift, which is also aligned with the DIY trend.
The “Nuts for Gifts” Global Dissemination Program can be shared and disseminated through its ToolBox Kit. INC members and industry organizations can download it at the Members Area of the website nutsforgifts.org.
