FPRF welcomes research proposals to enhance current uses of rendered animal products, improve rendering processes, and develop new applications. The Foundations key area of focus are livestock nutrition (including aquaculture), pet food nutrition, feed safety, sustainability, and novel technologies.
Long term view
Since our funds are limited, we desire to obtain as much information as possible from our research grants. The research objectives for rendered by-products should be directed toward solving a significant problem, improving product safety/quality, chemical or biological modifications to increase value or nutritional studies to improve their utilization in animal diets.
Near Term View
For the near term, FPRF has decided to focus work in aquaculture, swine, and poultry nutrition aiming directly at gaps in the current knowledge necessary for diet formulators, including critical work in nutritional characteristics of rendered products. Significant research funding will be dedicated to these nutrition studies. Any research institution can compete for these funds by submitting “at-large” proposals to FPRF in formats described in this document.
At-large proposals outside the priority topics outlined above will be considered, as will at-large
proposals on biosecurity or new uses from institutions outside of ACREC, but a very compelling
case will need to be made for FPRF to shift intended priorities.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- The researcher(s) should have the academic qualifications, competence, and track record to undertake and complete the proposed research successfully.
- We occasionally consider proposals from additional countries outside of the US.
- Demonstration of knowledge of current thinking, other experts, and needed data in the field will be an advantage, as will proposals that engage more than one location or university.
- Salaries and fringe benefits for professional staff members and other
university overhead cannot be a part of the research budget proposal.
