The Foundation fiat panis, which took over the task of research funding from the Eiselen Foundation in 2010, has been able to support a variety of master and doctoral theses during their field work. The main objective of the Foundation fiat panis is to promote research projects which are likely to contribute to an improvement in the nutritional situation of people in countries with food deficit. For master theses we usually grant scholarships for traveling abroad and to do field work in the so-called developing countries. In the case of doctoral studies, we provide funds for a field work in developing countries.
Applications for research support can be submitted by professors, directors, doctoral supervisors or similar.
The application process is informal.
Please be aware, that we can only support innovative research projects with a clear reference to the food security.
To simplify the procedure please send us a short application (max. 2 pages) with the following points:
- Title of the project
- Summary of the project
- Methodological approach
- Relevance of results for improving food security
- Time and cost schedule
- Name of the supervisor
Additionaly we need:
- Name of the researcher including CV
- an assessment of the supervisor
Please send us your application at an early stage. We need at least a month to check your records. We are not able to support projects that are already carried out or that are already terminated.
If you have any questions, just give us a call or write an e-mail to clarify the issues with us.
