Applications are invited for GCRI Trust Travel Grants

The GCRI Trust is pleased to invite proposals for travel grants to further UK horticulture.

The GCRI Trust is a charitable trust, established in 1989, with the aim of promoting scientific research and education on the cultivation of protected crops.

The Trust provides small travel grants to researchers, managers and practitioners who are involved in the UK Horticulture Industry, and is keen to widen its reach to horticultural colleges and growers. It publishes technical reports of new and interesting items of potential value to UK horticulture.

“Through these travel grants we want to enthuse a new generation in our wonderful industry to travel overseas and bring back useful knowledge to take us a step forward,” commented Colin Frampton, Chairman of the GCRI Trust. He continued, “A progressive industry thrives on innovation, change and good ideas – these grants help make that possible and we look forward to exciting proposals coming in by the deadline!”

Applications for travel grants should be made by March 31st 2016 to the secretary of the GCRI Trust, Dr Kerry Burton at GCRItrust@emr.ac.uk .

Full guidelines on making an application can be found on the GCRI Travel Grants  webpage
