GFI understands the critical need for research and development in the plant-based and clean meat space. The GFI Research Program enables GFI to strategically support research projects that show the most promise for advancing the science and technology of plant-based and clean meat and for which alternative sources of funding are currently not available or may take significant time to secure. In general, the types of projects chosen for support by the Program are those that are considered high impact but low risk. Additionally, the projected time frame in which most funded projects are conducted is relatively short (1-3 years), increasing the likelihood that projects will get completed and completed on schedule.
