This dossier contains over 200 annotated links to information on innovative funding strategies and organizations that provide funding for agricultural research in ACP countries. These links are intended for policy makers and managers of research institutes who are confronted with restrained budgets and need to reorganize the institutional frameworks through which their research can be funded. The first section of this dossier feature links to web resources that outline new approaches, trends and developments in financing agricultural research. The second and third section contain links to information on two main institutional innovations in financing agricultural onderzoek, i.e. Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) and competitive research grant schemes. The remaining sections provide directions to a great number of organizations and programmes that finance agricultural research projects.
