Global Crop Diversity Trust Award Scheme: Enhancing the Value of Crop Diversity: Third Call for Proposals

This is the Third call under this Award Scheme. All interested parties are hereby invited to submit proposals for consideration by the Trust for an award in early 2010. This call is being made in coordination with the complementary call of the Generation Challenge Programme.

The Genotyping Support Services (GSS) of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research’s (CGIAR) Generation Challenge Programme (GCP) promotes the use of molecular markers to assess the potential value of germplasm by linking grantees with genotyping facilities they may not otherwise have access to. The call for proposals by GSS targets breeding programmes and/or germplasm collections in national agricultural research systems (NARS), academia, and civil society organisations in developing countries. The third call for proposals is open now, further information is available at
