GFI’s Inaugural Competitive Research Grant Program

You’re invited to help feed the world! Thanks to gifts from visionary donors, the Good Food Institute will fund research to accelerate the development of plant-based and clean meat products. Solve a challenge in these industries and your research can help create a healthy, humane, and sustainable food supply!

The Good Food Institute (GFI) promotes food innovation and markets to feed the world’s growing population with safe and healthy foods produced through systems that do not negatively impact people, animals, and the planet. We focus on accelerating research, development, and the path to competitive commercialization for plant-based and clean meat.

GFI’s Science & Technology Team catalyzes research and development to improve the quality, price, and accessibility of plant-based and clean meat. In support of this effort, we are launching a competitive research grant program to fund research addressing critical science and technology barriers facing the plant-based and clean meat industries. We encourage you to submit your proposal and join us in creating a healthy, humane, and sustainable food supply!

Deadline for proposal submission: November 21, 2018

GFI’s foundational mission is to support all plant-based and clean meat industries. Research funded by this program will be made available and accessible to that benefit.
