Funding

Contact us if you or your organization is interested in helping to fund this Initiative to encourage development of a public-private partnership to research and implement animal digestible food packaging.

Grants

Once the public-private partnership is established, funding for research into animal digestible food packaging might be found through organizations such as the ones below.

Grant funding would unleash the genius of researchers at our Nation’s land grant universities and other organizations. They will rise to the challenge to discover animal digestible food packaging that meets safety, integrity and quality requirements!

Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research

The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) “builds unique partnerships to support innovative and actionable science addressing today’s food and agriculture challenges. The Foundation was established by the Farm Bill passed in 2014 and charged with complementing and furthering the important work of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Leveraging public and private resources, FFAR will increase the scientific and technological research, innovation, and partnerships critical to enhancing sustainable production of nutritious food for a growing global population.”

Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy and Water Systems

National Science Foundation (NSF) “Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy and Water (FEW) Systems” program “seeks to support research that conceptualizes FEW systems broadly and inclusively, incorporating social and behavioral processes (such as decision making and governance), physical processes (such as built infrastructure and new technologies for more efficient resource utilization), natural processes (such as biogeochemical and hydrologic cycles), biological processes (such as agroecosystem structure and productivity), and cyber-components (such as sensing, networking, computation and visualization for decision-making and assessment).”
