The National Fund for Research and Innovation for Development (FONRID), as part of its support and funding missions for research, popularization, valuation and innovation for development activities is launching a call for project concept note submission. The year 2018 saw the adoption of the 2019-2023 strategic plan of FONRID. This document was developed with the participation of stakeholders in the research and innovation environment and validated during a national workshop. The implementation of this tool from 2019 requires that the research and innovation projects to be funded are consistent with this strategic plan. The themes proposed for this call are taken from this bank of priority themes (strategic plan of FONRID and PRONAFER) defined and classified by specialists and actors in each field. For this second year of implementation of this strategic plan, careful consideration will be given to innovation projects which should contribute to:
(i) Improve knowledge and use of modern biotechnologies in Agriculture.
(ii) Promote and improve the processing of cash products;
(iii) Mitigate adverse effects climate change on the plant cover;
(iv) Improve knowledge of genetic (mono or multifactorial) or metabolic diseases and their prevalence;
(v) Promote the use of local materials in architectural diversity;
(vi) Mitigate the harmful effects of mining discharges on the environment;
(vii) Develop techniques for the sustainable management of crop pests.
This call for projects is mainly aimed at project leaders who propose to promote research and innovation in order to improve the living conditions of the population . These projects should make it possible to support the sectoral research and innovation policy (operational action plan 2017-2020 of the Ministry of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Innovation).
