From 16 December 2019 to 29 February 2020, the CIHEAM is opening a call for contribution for its "Field Research Initiative" (FRI) project. PhD students and young researchers are invited to conduct short-term field research related to food and nutrition security, sustainable agriculture and rural development, climate change mitigation and plant health in order to enhance practical skills.
A special focus will be made for the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). 3 out of the 10 grants will be awarded to proposals providing innovative/sustainable solutions to pests/diseases of primary importance for the Mediterranean and African regions. The first ten proposals will be broadcasted (poster/videos) during the final event of the IYPH celebrations in the key event of Helsinki 2020 for global visibility.
