1 I. Introduction Agropolis Fondation 2014 Call for Proposals (CfP) Open Science [Ref. CfP ] TERMS OF REFERENCE FINAL VERSION 30 JULY 2014 Agropolis Fondation s mission is to promote and support interdisciplinary and integrated approaches in plant biology, ecology, sustainable agriculture, products and uses that address development issues concerning the North and the South, particularly (1) the increasing demand for plants and plant by-products both for food and non-food applications; (2) the interaction between climate change and crops; and (3) the prevention and management of risks related to crop and food systems. It involves a scientific network composed of 36 research units, the "Labex Agro", specializing in plant research at various levels from genes to environments and to final uses. The network brings together about 1400 scientists and 600 PhD students and covers a wide range of disciplines, i.e., from bio-technical to social sciences, with recognized expertise in temperate, tropical and Mediterranean regions. The Foundation also promotes international scientific mobility that enables leading and promising scientists and researchers from around the world to work with their counterparts from foundation s scientific network 1 thereby contributing to building scientific capacity and promoting the creation of networks of excellence. II. Objectives of the Call The CfP Open Science is aimed at promoting new ways of doing research by favoring a collaborative enquiry on scientific topics involving a range of actors. As such, proposals submitted under this Call are expected to employ transformative approaches that have a combination of any of the following characteristics: Enable the better construction and formalization of scientific questions associated with socio-economic issues in the development of innovation or in a societal problem; Integrate/link various scales and disciplines; Lead to improved management of complex and massive data; Better characterize, explore and exploit the diversity of biological systems; Favor the use, transfer and exchange of generated knowledge; Lead to sustainable agro-ecosystems and/or food-processing systems. Proposals submitted are also expected to have innovative partnership modalities with the direct involvement of any or a combination of the following stakeholders: International agricultural research organizations and programmes such as, but not limited to, those belonging to the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR); Private sector (foundations, industrial partners ); and/or Other non-conventional research actors (e.g., NGOs, farmer/producers organizations, consumer groups, etc. ). 1 For the list of the Foundation s research units, please visit 1

2 III. Thematic coverage 1. This Call will fund research projects focusing on any of the following thematic research domains covered by Agropolis Fondation and its Labex Agro scientific community, namely: Genetics and genomics, plant breeding, eco-physiology; Plant pests and diseases, integrated crop protection, plant population ecology; Agro-ecosystems, agri-environmental innovations and natural resources management (including ecosystem services) Agri-food innovations, food and non-food uses of crops; Innovation processes and social management of innovations (broadly, agriculture and society, including governance, local knowledge and practices, and mobilizing social sciences ) 2. Projects cross-cutting several of these domains are encouraged. IV. Eligibility 3. Only proposals that fall within the thematic coverage described above are eligible (see exemption item 8). 4. The lead proponent should be from one of the research units belonging to the Foundation s scientific network (Labex Agro) 2 (see exemption item 8). 5. In the case of application for Twin Post-doc Fellowship (see items 9b and 10), the proposal should be submitted jointly by a scientist (or a group of scientists) from a research unit belonging to the Foundation s scientific network and a scientist (or a group scientists) from a CGIAR Research Programme (CRP) (see exemption item 8). 6. Scientists from research units or institutions outside of the Foundation s scientific network can participate as partners (see exemption item 8). 7. A scientist can coordinate only one project funded under this specific CfP. 8. Exemptions to items 3, 4, 5, 6 and 12 will be applied for proposals for Twin Post-doc Fellowship co-funded by Cirad or other French institutions in partnership with a CGIAR Research Programme (CRP) whose thematic coverage does not necessarily fall within the Foundation s scientific focus (e.g., livestock and fish, etc.). V. Project types, cost and duration 9. Up to 2M is available for this CfP which will fund four types of projects presented below. Co-funding by other partners is highly encouraged. a. Full Projects may include request to support any or a combination of the following funding categories: * Senior Fellowship Junior Fellowship Post-doctoral Fellowship 2 For the list of the Foundation s research units, please visit Interested parties are highly encouraged to contact directly the concerned research unit(s) in writing. 2
