How does the CRP achieve its objectives?

  • Fellowships: CRP funds short-term research projects for individual scientists in other CRP member countries. These individual travel bursary awards strengthen the exchange of ideas and increase international mobility and co-operation. Some 76% of the fellowships result in long-term co-operation between the fellow and their host institutes, a major goal of the programme.
  • Conferences: The CRP sponsors international conferences and workshops to help keep policy makers, industry, and the academic world informed of innovative research, scientific developments and opportunities.

These Activities :

  • Promote co-ordination among stakeholders to ensure that their objectives do not overlap or contradict each other.
  • Provide objective evidence of the possible outcomes of approaches and options.
  • Support the definition of measurable policy objectives (e.g. the incorporation of soil security into national law).
  • Highlight the links between agriculture and diverse policy areas (e.g. the role of education in ensuring food security and sustainability).

Applications relevant to the work of the OECD Committee for Agriculture and other bodies are particularly welcome:
