Joint Call for Proposals in Food Biotechnology Academy of Finland and Indian(DBT)

The Department of Biotechnology (DBT) and Academy of Finland launch a joint call for proposals, the aim of which is to promote Indo-Finnish cooperation in the field of Food Biotechnology.
The focus is in the development of biotechnical processes in food and nutritional science research, covering all issues where biotechnology is applied. The 3-year projects can cover for example the following topics: food processing and food safety.The successful projects will be funded in India by the DBT and in Finland by the Academy of Finland. The joint projects must meet the criteria of the funding agencies. The research projects are funded for a maximum of three years.

The Finnish and Indian co-applicants will develop one joint research plan that will be sent to both the DBT and the Academy of Finland using the forms of each organisation, respectively. The applications must include a statement on how the proposed collaboration brings added valued for both countries.

The project budget must clearly delineate justified Finnish and Indian costs. The costs of the Finnish partner must be eligible as per the guidelines of the Academy of Finland. Accordingly, the costs of the Indian partner must be eligible as per the guidelines of the DBT. Applicants are reminded to include sufficient budget for travel between Finland and India to ensure successful collaboration.
