The Foundation is calling for new investment proposals, with applications due 27 August

Investments proposals must have a very specific and defined purpose, clear benefits to plant biosecurity in Australia, and be consistent with the Foundation’s Vision and Mission ( Proposals are welcome from any organization or individual.

This 2020 funding round will focus on the following areas, although all proposals will be considered:

  • environmental biosecurity (including overlap with social and community biosecurity)
  • Myrtle Rust, clearly aligned with priorities in the Myrtle Rust National Action Plan);
  • social biosecurity, including indigenous engagement; and
  • scholarships to attend conferences or training events, focused on Early Career Researchers and developing country links.

We welcome co-investment opportunities and collaborative initiatives, including with international linkages, related to the above.

Please contact the Foundation to discuss your proposal, and for further information download the Proposal form.

Applications close on 27 August.
