Call for Concept Notes
Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Collaborative Research on Sustainable Intensification makes call for concept notes
Deadline: July 10th, 2015
The USAID Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Collaborative Research on Sustainable Intensification at Kansas State University invites the submission of concept notes from eligible entities to compete for research sub-award projects. Concept notes will be reviewed and may lead to an invitation to submit a full proposal.
All types of US and non-US entities are eligible to apply provided they are not excluded from U.S. Government acquisition and assistance awards (this may be verified through the U.S. Government System for Award Management at https:www.sam.gov/portal/public/SAM and by checking the U.S. Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control List of Specially Designated Nationals (SDNs) and Blocked Persons and by checking the United Nations Security Designation Lists).
Approximately up to US $8 million is potentially available through this RFA which will likely support 6 to 8 projects over 4 years. Collaboration or partnerships with relevant and appropriate host country organizations, other universities, the CGIAR system, and/or development community partners is required. Target regions include Asia, West Africa, and East Africa and within these regions there will be an emphasis in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Ethiopia, and Tanzania.
Research sub-award projects focused on the development and implementation of sustainable intensification practices in one or more of the target countries will be competitively selected.
Concept notes are due July 10, 2015. Beginning June 12, 2015, complete information will be available at: http://www.k-state.edu/siil/opportunities
