To further our mission of transforming food systems, BFI’s research program funds critical, cross-functional research projects at UC Berkeley. In 2013–2016, BFI provided more than $336,000 in funding through 13 faculty research seed grants comprised of 57 principal investigators and 49 collaborators. Read a summary of our research projects here.
During the first three years, BFI focused funding on smaller seed grants to support innovative ideas across a range of issues. As we evolve as an organization, we are reducing the number of projects we fund so that we can increase our focus and impact on our core themes.
