BBSRC are holding a workshop to discuss the proposed upcoming Newton Fund call for Virtual Joint Centres in Agricultural Nitrogen with Brazil, China and India. The workshop is open to UK academics who are eligible to receive BBSRC funding.
Date: 11 March 2015, 10am – 4pm
Venue: Park Crescent Conference Centre, London
The workshop will be an opportunity to find out more about the call, to meet the BBSRC team involved, meet other UK researchers who could be potential collaborators, and to provide advice to BBSRC to help scope the call. The outputs of this workshop will help to inform the scope of the call which should launch in spring 2015.
Areas of research which could be addressed by a Virtual Joint Centre could include:
- increasing nitrogen use efficiency in crop plants
- developing/improving biological nitrogen fixation in crop plants
- agronomic nitrogen management and/or efficiency
If you would like to be involved, please complete a short application form by 25 February 2015.
You can find all the details on the BBSRC website.
