Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition (BCFN) - BCFN Yes! Research Grant Competition
Since the very first edition, BCFN YES! has embodied the identity and the ambition of the BCFN Foundation. Indeed, it brings together young people from around the world, with different disciplinary approaches, and invites them to come up with practical projects to create a better balance between food sustainability and environmental sustainability. The goal of the contest is to find solutions to the food paradoxes, through innovative, practical and multi-disciplinary ideas. The 2018 BCFN YES! calls for concrete research proposals for making more sustainable the agri-food system (in terms of environmental, social, health and/or economic aspects), that are coherent with the BCFN research projects.
