Congratulations to all of the participants in the NSF BREAD Ideas Challenge. Skild is proud to have supported this incredible contest.
Here's the official press release from NSF:
The National Science Foundation (NSF) today announced the 13 winners of the $10,000 BREAD Ideas Challenge.
The challenge, part of the Basic Research to Enable Agricultural Development (BREAD) program and co-funded by NSF and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, asked participants from around the world to describe, in 100 words or fewer, the most pressing, novel issues facing small-holder farms--farms typically the size of a football field or smaller--in developing countries.
Challenge winners will receive $10,000 each and have their ideas showcased on the BREAD Ideas Challenge website. BREAD program officers anticipate the winning challenges will prompt new research and collaborations for the BREAD program'supcoming call for NSF Early Concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER)proposals.
