Canadian International Food Security Research Fund launches 2011 Call for Concept Notes

IDRC is pleased to announce the 2011 Call for Concept Notes as part of the Canadian International Food Security Research Fund.

The deadline for submission of concept notes is March 23, 2011. Project budgets under the upcoming call will be in the range of CA$1 to $5 million.

Notable changes from the 2010 CIFSRF Call for Concept notes include:

Increased eligibility for international organizations

Restrictions on the allowable number of applications in which researchers can be involved

Shorter project duration, which must not exceed 30 months, including field research and final reporting

The online application will be available for six weeks on the CIFSRF website, starting Wednesday, February 9, 2011 and closing Wednesday, March 23, 2011.

The CIFSRF is a 5-year, CA$62-million fund that supports research partnerships between Canadian and developing-country research organizations for applied research to find lasting solutions to fight hunger and food insecurity in the developing world. The Fund is a core element of CIDA’s Food Security Strategy and of IDRC’s food security programming priorities.
