- To support research on optimizing plant protein for use in plant-based meat.
Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $250,000 over three years to the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) to support research on optimizing plant protein for use in plant-based meat. This funding is intended to support protein optimization in chickpeas, led by NuCicer. The project was submitted as part of FFAR’s request for proposals, which Open Philanthropy co-funded in April 2020.
This falls within Open Philanthropy's focus area of scientific research and represents a match of a similar grant from the farm animal welfare program.
