CSREES requests applications for the Integrated Research, Education, and Extension Competitive Grants Program-National Integrated Food Safety Initiative for fiscal year 2007 to support integrated, multifunctional agricultural research, extension, and education activities that address food safety priorities in the United States. The purpose of the National Integrated Food Safety Initiative is to support food safety projects that demonstrate an integrated approach to solving problems in applied food safety research, education, or extension. The National Integrated Food Safety Initiative requests integrated research, education, and extension applications that address a broad spectrum of food safety concerns from on-farm production, post-harvest processing, and distribution, to food selection, preparation, and consumption. Various models for integration of applied research, education, and extension will be considered for funding. Applications describing multi-state, multi-institutional, multidisciplinary, and multifunctional activities (and combinations thereof) are encouraged. Applicants are strongly encouraged to assemble project teams that include those with expertise in research, extension, and/or education. All members of the project team should be involved in the development and writing of the application. For tips on developing integrated grant applications, applicants may visit http://www.csrees.usda.gov/nea/food/pdfs/tipsheet.pdf on the web. The National Integrated Food Safety Initiative creates opportunities for new collaborations between individuals and institutions in an effort to address problems in new ways and/or improve communication with high risk, under-served, or hard-to-reach audiences. In order to fully realize these potential benefits, CSREES strongly encourages applicants to develop applications describing integrated activities that include collaboration with 1890 Land-Grant Institutions, 1994 Land-Grant Institutions, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and/or other institutions that serve high risk, under-served, or hard-to-reach populations. Collaborations with local, state, and/or Federal governments, professional associations, public or private organizations, and/or international entities are also strongly encouraged. Applicants are strongly encouraged to address at least two of the three functional areas of research, education, and extension (i.e., research and extension, research and education, or extension and education).
