ANR Competitive & High Risk/High Reward Grants 2011-2017 Funded Projects

Beginning in 2011 and through 2017 the ANR Competitive and High Risk/High Reward Grants programs funded 79 projects for a total investment of roughly $15 million dollars.

Through the ANR Competitive Grants Program, ANR invested in short-term, high-impact research, education and outreach projects that address high-priority issues consistent with the ANR Strategic Vision; encourage collaboration among academics from diverse disciplines and across initiatives; strengthen the research-extension network and demonstrate relevance and likelihood of impact on significant agricultural, economic, environmental and social issues in California and beyond.

Given the complexity of societal problems, high-risk research is necessary to achieve gains for real progress in addressing present and emerging challenges. The ANR High Risk/High Reward Grants Program provides funds to initiate and complete research and proof-of-concept efforts that serve as the basis for larger funding opportunities.
