ESPV- ONE HEALTH

Research Grant competition at the Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition Foundation, Italy.

Research Grant competition at the Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition Foundation, Italy. 

A maximum of three research grants of € 20,000 will be awarded in favor of innovative research proposals in one or more of the following areas: Sustainable and healthy dietary patterns; Sustainable agriculture; Food security.

  • The Foundation analyzes the major issues related to food and nutrition, health and sustainability, producing high scientific content to enable people to make informed decisions about the food they eat. 
  • The BCFN considers young researchers an essential resource to address these issues with concrete solutions and impact. For this reason, it has launched the seventh edition of BCFN YES! Young Earth Solutions, an international competition for PhD students and postdoctoral researchers under 35, from all over the world and from any educational background.

The research proposals can be submitted by individual researchers and multidisciplinary teams, until June 14th, 2018. More information to apply is available on the competition’s website: www.bcfnyes.com


The authors of the ten best research projects will be invited to the International Forum on Food and Nutrition in Milan, on  November 27 and 28, 2018. All travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by BCFN. Finalists will have the opportunity to present their projects in front of a panel of experts and the public of the Forum, and in this occasion, the three winning projects will be selected. You can have a look at the 2017 highlights here

The BCFN YES! Research Grant Competition is an ideal opportunity to create a new generation of sustainability experts. All finalists become part of BCFN Alumni, global network that brings together finalists of all the previous editions. The Alumni share resources and experiences, participate in workshops and events, and are in constant dialogue with other institutions to promote food sustainability and the active role of future generations within society.


I hope that young researchers in the food sustainability sector will seize this great opportunity of visibility, funding and contacts.
