Nominate an Innovation Lab scientist for BIFAD awards

Do you want to recognize a scientist who is doing outstanding research through a Feed the Future Innovation Lab?

The Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD) is accepting nominations for the BIFAD Award for Scientific Excellence in a Feed the Future Innovation Lab. Each year, the Board recognizes a recipient in both the Senior Researcher (or Research Team) and Student Researcher categories.

The nominees are judged based on:

  • Scientific and technical merit of the research;
  • Relevance of the research to developing countries’ national and/or regional agricultural research priorities;
  • Potential for the research to contribute to improvements in food security, nutrition, resilience and inclusive, sustainable economic growth;
  • Evidence of commitment to capacity building.

The full Call for Nominations and submission portal can be accessed on the BIFAD Awards page and at www.aplu.org/bifad.
