An international contest for food sustainability.



In 2012, the BCFN Foundation launched the first edition of BCFN YES!, a contest open to PhD candidates and young research fellows around the world. The award is given in recognition and support of innovative projects on food and sustainability.

BCFN YES! is a clear expression of the identity of the BCFN Foundation.

It’s an international contest, because discussions about food relate to us all.

It’s a multidisciplinary contest, because diverse approaches enrich the discussion around food.

It’s a contest which values and encourages the intersection of food sustainability and environmental sustainability, because the relationship between people and the planet is the basis of the BCFN Foundation’s philosophy and of the double food and environmental pyramid.


2018 BCFN YES!

The 2018 BCFN YES! Research Grant Competition invites young PhD and postdoc researchers from any background and nationality to submit a research project to improve the sustainability of the food system.

The award is a 20.000 € research grant applied to a one-year investigation. A maximum of three teams will be awarded the Research Grant.
