Funding Innovation for the Industry: 2024-2025 Research Funding

1 Min Read

A core value of our mission is to help address industry challenges and struggles through the funding of cutting-edge research. We understand the important role research plays in sustaining our industry, and as a result, much of the research that has transformed industry practices in the past 60+ years has been sponsored by AFE, helping to provide longer-lasting, better-quality flowers and plants. We are committed to continuing to support advancements like this, and accept new proposals from researchers each year.

AFE’s Research Committee and the Society of American Florists Growers Council carefully review these proposals and evaluate them for their focus, reach, and benefit to the industry. If selected, an independent scientific peer review is carried out.

We are pleased to announce that in 2024-2025, AFE will support 12 research projects in total, including five new projects and seven continuing projects, with $600,000 in funding from the Endowment’s Research Funds.
