The National Pork Board
For More Information
The National Pork Board is soliciting research proposals dealing with Pork Safety – Post Harvest; Pork quality; Sustainability – Manure, Water; and Swine Health – PRRS. All proposals submitted must address at least one of the specific research topics of interest described in the individual solicitation descriptions (see website link below). Novel approaches and concepts to the research topics are encouraged.
There are no exact funding limits for submitted proposals but the budget request should be appropriate and justified for the work that is being proposed. In most of the solicitations, researchers are encouraged to find matching funds or in-kind contributions when possible.
Projects may be multi-year. Requests for second-year funding must be resubmitted.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
Applicant submits proposal via the National Pork Board website.
