Commissioning of Research
The Potato Council is not currently seeking to receive EoIs.
The Potato Council issues Invitations to Tender for research work; Calls for Proposals; and at some times during the year will also receive speculative proposals from research contractors. When we are seeking to receive applications, the relevant information and forms will be made available via this page (see below).
The Potato Council currently acts as an industrial sponsor on Defra LINK projects, and is prepared to support the submission of expressions of interest to Technology Strategy Board (TSB) competitions, provided that certain criteria are met. Please email email@example.com for further information.
If you require more information on a specific project please contact the Potato Council's R&D team (firstname.lastname@example.org or tel: 0247 6478784).
The call for 2013 studentships is now closed
The Potato Council Studentship scheme has been launched this year for studentships starting in 2013. Its aim is to produce high-quality research outputs, based on original ideas, leading to benefits to the potato industry. Crucially, the scheme intends to deliver high-calibre practically-minded individuals to the industry for employment within both the commercial and academic crop arenas. The priorities and applied focus for applications for a Studentship Award can be identified in the Potato Council research strategy document, which outlines priorities for 2012-2015. Please note that the Potato Council does not make studentship awards directly to students. Candidates for a studentship should address their enquiries to the institution where they would like to undertake a research degree.
