NARMS Cooperative Agreement Program to Enhance and Strengthen Antibiotic Resistance Sur... - 0 views

  •  
    This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM), builds upon the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) which was initiated in 1996 as one of the key activities in a national action plan to combat antibiotic resistance threats. The purpose of this FOA is to protect and promote public health by enhancing, strengthening and sustaining antibiotic resistance surveillance in retail food specimens within the NARMS program. The NARMS cooperative agreements will improve the detection of antibiotic resistance among enteric bacteria in food commodities, as well as potentially develop new sites as part of the program. Measurable outcomes of the program will be in alignment with the NARMS Objectives.

HawksNest: Miami University's crowdfunding platform - 0 views

shared by MiamiOH OARS on 29 Jan 16 - No Cached
  •  
    Together with University Advancement, the Office for the Advancement of Research & Scholarship (OARS) is rolling out an new crowdfunding platform called HawksNest. Through HawksNest, alumni, family, and friends of the university can directly support the research, scholarship, and service projects of Miami University students, faculty, and staff.

    This is how HawksNest works:

    * Any Miami University student, faculty, or staff member may complete an online application to have a project considered for funding.
    * An internal review team assesses applications and posts approved projects on HawksNest for a maximum of 45 days.
    * Potential donors visit the site to learn about and pledge funds to approved projects.
    * Once a funding goal has been met, the project can begin!
    * Project managers use the site to keep donors up-to-date with information on the project's progress.

Integrated Research, Education, and Extension Competitive Grants Program - Methyl Bromi... - 0 views

  •  
    The methyl bromide transition program addresses the immediate needs and the costs of transition that have resulted from the scheduled phase-out of the pesticide methyl bromide. Methyl bromide has been a pest and disease control tactic critical to pest management systems for decades for soilborne and postharvest pests. The program focuses on integrated commercial-scale research on methyl bromide alternatives and associated extension activity that will foster the adoption of these solutions. Projects should cover a broad range of new methodologies, technologies, systems, and strategies for controlling economically important pests for which methyl bromide has been the only effective pest control option. Research projects must address commodities with critical issues and include a focused economic analysis of the cost of implementing the transition on a commercial scale.

USAID Bureau for Food Security (BFS) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Climate Smart ... - 0 views

  •  
    This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) seeks opportunities to co-create, co-design, co-invest, and collaborate in the research, development, piloting, testing, and scaling of innovative, practical and cost-effective activities in the general area of Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA). The focus of this BAA is to identify innovative thinking, best practices and promising programs that will provide cost effective and practical options to respond to climate and weather related impacts on small holder farmer-based food and agriculture systems in low income countries. In many cases, such options and practices may provide a "double or triple win" by also reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving agriculture income and productivity. Any opportunities for funding and partnering will be issued as Addenda to this BAA. In Addendum Number 01 to the Climate Smart Agriculture BAA, USAID seeks knowledge and solutions to the current problem of limited levels of private sector engagement and investment in Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) practices and technologies. The main focus of this work is to help smallholder-based food and agriculture systems in low-income countries adapt to climate and weather change impacts. The countries supported by the USG Feed the Future Initiative are the primary geographic focus. Collaboration opportunities that align with USAID's focus value chains in the Feed the Future countries are particularly encouraged. More information on the Feed the Future Initiative and FTF focus and aligned countries can be found at www.feedthefuture.org.

    We seek applications from independent investigators who can devote a substantial portion of time to this effort. While we will not require a minimum Principal Investigator (PI) effort, we expect the PI to commit to a level of effort that reflects a leading role in the project. We encourage applications from researchers who are not currently working on autism, but who have expertise that could be brought to bear on this complex disorder. We will also accept collaborative grants involving multiple investigators.

    As part of our mission supporting farmers and ranchers, the Farm Service Agency (FSA) provides extensive education and outreach for producers. This typically involves public meetings, mailings, news releases, and interactions with individual producers seeking additional information or to enroll in a program. However, there remains a need for additional outreach and education that could benefit potential participants in FSA's portfolio of programs.

    Beginning farmer education for adult and young audiences in the United States can be generally traced back to the advent of the 1862 and the 1890 Morrill Land Grant Acts. But for the first time, the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (Pub .L. No. 110-234, Section 7410), appropriated $75 million for FY 2009 to FY 2012 to develop and offer education, training, outreach and mentoring programs to enhance the sustainability of the next generation of farmers. The Agriculture Act of 2014 provided an additional $20 million per year for 2014 through 2018.
