The webinar on October 14th, will be hosted by Bayer’s Open Innovation Lead, Phil Taylor and Innovation Scout, Al Kriz. They will examine what Bayer Crop Science is looking for and how to make a proposal stand out from the crowd, what is different about the Grant4, and the resources and support available to awardees. Phil and Al will also be available to answer questions directly from researchers.
Bayer’s Grants4Ag program provides grants of between €5,000 and €15,000 for novel, early-stage scientific innovations that can contribute to feeding the world without starving the planet. In addition to the funding, each recipient will be partnered with a Bayer scientist who will provide guidance and feedback on the project.
Areas of interest cover fighting pests while preserving biodiversity, reducing chemical input and enhancing soil health, and accelerating precision agriculture. The deadline for submissions is 31st October 2020.
Bayer views these grants as an initial investment with the potential to become larger-scale, longer-term collaborations. Bayer’s Grants4 programs have no formal reporting requirements and applicants retain ownership of any intellectual property developed.
Learn more during a live, interactive webinar Oct. 14 at 9 a.m., 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. EST (2pm, 6pm and 2am BST).
