The High-Value Nutrition National Science Challenge has seen increased interest in its Contestable Fund programme this year, despite the impacts of COVID-19. In fact, interest from the Food & Beverage (F&B) industry continues to be at such a level that we anticipate the fund may be fully subscribed by the end of this year or early 2022.

In order to ensure applicants have the best chance of securing funds we encourage all prospective applicants to submit their proposals to the HVN Directorate within the next two Assessment Dates:

– 12 June 2021
– 14 August 2021

 A schedule of Assessment Dates, along with application forms, can be found here. Once fully allocated, the Contestable Fund will close and no new proposals will be reviewed.
