EDEN has a history of collaborating with its member institutions and other agencies. These collaborative efforts have produced educational materials, learning modules and information campaigns. In some cases, EDEN has funded the work of its collaborating institution; in some cases EDEN has received funding from the collaborator.
EDEN's first formal offer for collaboration on competitive proposals is in conjunction with the announcement of the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) competitive grant program by USDA's National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). Information about this initiative, and a copy of the announcement sent by EDEN to land-grant administrators can be found on the Competitive Proposal Collaboration page.
