The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety (FSIL) invites researchers at minority-serving institutions (MSIs) to submit proposals for research projects that support FSIL’s mission to reduce the burden of foodborne illness on individuals, households, and communities through data-driven food safety policies and practices.
USAID’s Bureau for Resilience and Food Security and its partners, including the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety, are committed to fostering the growth and professional development for minorities and others who have been historically underrepresented in international development. Through initiatives like the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council and the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety’s RFA for global food safety research at MSIs, USAID and our partners will work to address inequalities within the international development community.
This Request for Applications (RFA) is issued by the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety (FSIL), and the full solicitation is available on the FSIL Piestar RFx site. The deadline for submission of concept notes is May 7, 2020.
The FSIL is a five-year collaborative research program implemented by Purdue University (lead institution) and Cornell University. The program is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Four proposals are anticipated to be funded under this solicitation.
