The direction and purpose of the research foundation
Through the Lantmännen Research Foundation, we want to create an opportunity to identify and develop innovative solutions in the areas where Lantmännen operates. The goal of the research is to implement the results, either in the form of increased knowledge, or directly in our business or on our owners' farms.
The type of projects that can receive funding is described in the foundation’s purpose paragraph:
“The purpose of the foundation is to conduct scientific research and development within the area of grains and other raw materials from crop production and the further processing thereof, in order to promote the use of those raw materials.”
Three focus areas
There are several prioritized areas within the three focus areas. These areas are defined in the proposal calls and describe which parts we are particularly interested in and would like to see applications within.
The texts for the calls for proposals are updated before every new application round and can be found under the various focus area pages.
