Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) is inviting proposals for its “Agri-systems research to enhance livelihoods in developing countries” to address research challenges relating to the sustainable intensification of agricultural systems in developing countries.
