Launching GFI’s 2021 grant program for alternative protein research


17:00 / 18:00

The Good Food Institute invites you to a webinar presenting our 2021 request for proposals (RFP)

GFI’s research grant program provides funding for open access research in the fields of alternative proteins – plant-based meat, cultivated meat and fermentation technology. Now in its third year, our annual competitive research grant request for proposals (RFP) serves as the next strategic step for advancing the science of meat alternative proteins. This RFP will provide up to $250K per project for open access research focused on addressing the scientific and technical bottlenecks facing the production of whole-cut alternative protein products with the taste and price consumers demand. While the alternative protein industry has made significant scientific strides in recent years, there still exist several key barriers facing the production of larger three-dimensional meat and seafood products. Addressing these scientific white spaces will catalyze the development of “next generation” alternative protein meat and seafood, seeding our future food system.
