Research grant opportunity available for two contest winners.
To expand our mission to develop solutions for tomorrow’s challenges, the World Center for Innovation (CMI), which is the Roullier Group's world-renowned research and development center, is eager to support some of the world's brightest plant nutrition scientists. The Roullier Group, Timac Agro USA’s parent company, is offering two researchers or research laboratories the opportunity to participate in their second annual Innovation Awards competition.
Now through February 28, 2018, the CMI is welcoming pioneering, agricultural research submissions in the area of plant nutrition from scientists around the world. Both of the Innovation Awards winners will be offered the opportunity to develop their research project over the course of a year in collaboration with the Roullier Group and with nearly $70,000 in funding.
The aim of this award is to promote scientific collaboration, as well as to develop innovative research in plant nutrition. The competition’s 'jury' is comprised of five people, including 2 from the CMI and three from prestigious laboratories in various countries. A full list of names and titles are available on the competition's website: www.innovation-awards-roullier.com.
Timac Agro USA product managers have encouraged over 20 of our university partners to participate in the program. Competition winners will be selected and awarded at the designated ceremony, to be held in June 2018.
