This initiative led by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and CONCYTEC seeks to provide funding for high-quality collaborative research projects that focus on the relationship between food, nutrition and health in Peru. It is carried out under the framework of the Newton-Paulet Fund in science and innovation.
The call seeks to generate scientific and technological knowledge relating to food, nutrition and health, in a multidisciplinary and collaborative manner, by granting funds to create Research Circles that develop projects between organisations and researchers from Peru and the UK.
A Research Circle is composed of a group of researchers from different entities that work collectively in different disciplines. They will conduct research to further multidisciplinary scientific and technological knowledge.
The Medical Research Council (MRC) seeks to improve the health of people in the UK and around the world by supporting excellence in science and training the best scientists.
