2016 Request for Pre-Proposal - Cherry
The Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission, in partnership with the Oregon Sweet Cherry Commission, is accepting pre-proposals for new funding consideration for the 2016 Northwest Cherry Research Review. The Review will be held at the Red Lion Yakima Center, November 10-11, 2015.
The cherry committee for Oregon and Washington completed an electronic survey of research priority needs for the coming year. The committee will take this information into consideration when reviewing pre-proposals. The research priority file can be downloaded by clicking on the link below. NOTE: There are 3 pages to the file - a summary of both WA and OR research priority ranking and individual WA and OR research priority ranking pages.
Pre-proposal files will be compiled and distributed to the OR and WA cherry committees for review and vote. (Note: pre-proposal submissions are for new proposals only. Continuing and final reports do not require pre-proposal submission.) By September 16, researchers will be notified whether or not they are invited to present their full proposal at the Review.
Here are important dates to remember:
1. Pre-proposals submission deadline: September 3 – 5:00pm PST
2. Deadline for submission of approved proposals plus continuing & final reports: October 14 – 5:00pm PST
3. PowerPoint show submission: November 5 - 5:00pm PST
