US: Horticultural Research Institute calls for research proposals

The Horticultural Research Institute is now accepting research project proposals designed to improve green industry efficiencies and profitability. Proposals for the 2023 grant cycle are due no later than June 1, 2023.

The Horticultural Research Institute’s mission is to direct, fund, promote, and communicate horticultural research. Supporting research that advances current methodologies, develops better technology, and bridges the divide between businesses and the consumer is exactly how HRI helps build prosperous businesses, advance the green industry, and fulfill its core vision.

Researchers are encouraged to submit proposals for research that addresses HRI's four strategic areas of focus:

  • Quantifying Plant Benefits
  • Gathering Consumer Insights
  • Creating Innovative Solutions
  • Producing Practical & Actionable Solution

Applicants are further encouraged to present projects that represent collaborative research efforts. Researchers are challenged to focus their research on attainable outcomes that demonstrate a return on investment for all sectors of the horticulture industry.

Grant awards typically range from $5,000 to $35,000. The Horticultural Research Institute encourages investigators to seek out matching funds as part of the proposal application process, although matching funds are not required.

Learn more about the grant application and procedural guidelines and access the online application submission portal on HRI’s website.
