BCFN YES! Research Grant Competition 2018

The 2018 BCFN YES! Research Grant Competition invites young PhD and postdoc researchers from any background and nationality to submit a research project to improve the sustainability of the food system. The BCFN YES! Research Grant Competition offers the opportunity to put into action concrete proposals that will have the objective of making more sustainable the agri-food system (in terms of environmental, social, health and/or economic aspects) and coherent with the BCFN research projects. Research proposals are to be proposed in one or more of the following areas:

  • Sustainable and healthy dietary patterns
  • Sustainable agriculture
  • Food security 

The competition encourages research ideas that might be considered groundbreaking with potential to be of high impact for the sustainability of the agri-food system and the implementation of the SDGs, and the review will be weighted to this innovation factor.


The award is a 20.000 € research grant applied to a one-year investigation. A maximum of three teams will be awarded the Research Grant.
