The FRIENZ project will provide funding to assist selected New Zealand delegates to participate in a Study Group tour through Europe for approximately 10 days beginning 12 October 2015. The task of the delegation is to promote opportunities for collaboration in research and innovation with New Zealand; strengthen existing relationships; and stimulate new collaboration with New Zealand research organisations and innovation partners.
The overall interdisciplinary theme of the tour is Food Innovation - particularly translational research towards developing new food and beverage products, and / or Food Safety.
Participants are expected to strengthen on-going relationships and collaboration with their New Zealand counterparts in the theme area.
The application process is administered by the FRIENZ Project and applications close 25th April 2015.
