Seven proposals are awarded under the Senior Expert Programme (SEP) within the framework of the Netherlands – CGIAR strategic partnership. The seven senior researchers, affiliated with Dutch research institutions, will receive extra funding to spend more time on research and research management in large CGIAR programmes and platforms. CGIAR is a global research partnership for a food secure future dedicated to reducing poverty, enhancing food and nutrition security, and improving natural resources.

This call is continuously open until Thursday 27 February 2020, or until the budget is fully allocated. The deadline for the next assessment round is December 11, 2018.
