National Workshop on Systems-Based Grant Programs
NIFA national program leaders, in partnership with The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, offered the third in a series of one-day national workshops covering the preparation and management of competitively awarded, systems-based grant applications on August 9, 2011. The event covered a number of new topics and revisited some key themes: stakeholder engagement, systems thinking, project evaluation, plugging in to eXtension CoPs, and project directorship.
The Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program, the Specialty Crop Research Initiative, the Organic Research and Extension Initiative, and the Organic Transitions Program all solicit applications that use a systems approach and transdisciplinary teams to meet challenges faced by producers and consumers.
