Small Initiatives

PBCRC small initiative funding aims to support activities consistent with the PBCRC’s Mission and Vision, and are relatively small, are time critical and/or only require a small budget. All proposals must have a very specific and defined purpose, and clear benefits to plant biosecurity.

Small initiative funding proposals may include:
 

  • Ad-hoc travel to laboratories, conferences etc (not included in PBCRC project budget allocation)
  • Convening strategic workshops
  • Professional development or capacity building activity
  • Invitations for international biosecurity experts to attend workshops/conferences
  • Workshop/conference sponsorship
  • Small concept project that may precede the development of a full project proposal
  • Other initiatives that advance plant biosecurity

Small initiative proposals are assessed each quarter. If you would like know more about small initiatives, contact the PBCRC
