Marsden Fund preliminary proposals for 2017

Preliminary proposals from AgResearch, Landcare Research, Plant & Food Research and Scion are among those submitted to the Marsden Fund.

This year there were 1106 preliminary proposals, 776 standards and 330 fast-starts.

This was similar to last year’s 1097, the third year of a slightly reduced number of applicants.

In total, 252 applicants have been invited to submit full proposals – 161 standards and 91 fast-starts.

The Royal Society, which has posted details HERE, expects about 140 proposals will eventually be contracted. The projected amount of funding available is approximately $84.8 million (excluding GST).
