Request for Proposals for Centers of Excellence

The Periodic Table of Food Initiative (PTFI) is seeking Expressions of Interest from public and private organizations to serve as Centers of Excellence with special interest in those centered in and/or strongly supporting low- and middle- income countries/the Global South. This request for proposals will prioritize organizations located outside of the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Centers of Excellence are fundamental in achieving the vision of the PTFI. They will drive innovation and translational opportunities for the PTFI through demonstration projects; identify opportunities and collaborations in the standardization of technologies and tools; and, in coordination with a network of labs, support capacity building for the use of PTFI technology in the Global South and around the world.

We look forward to receiving your applications on or before 5 November 2021. If you have questions, please reach out to PTFI Secretariat ( If you are still interested in submitting a response to the RFP after the deadline, please contact
