The Abdul Latif Jameel Water and Food Systems Lab (J-WAFS) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has announced seven new seed grants of funding to the MIT community. 

Under these grants, nine principal investigators from MIT will receive grants totaling over $1 million for solutions-oriented research into global food and water challenges. Agricultural productivity technologies for small-holder farmers; food safety solutions for everyday consumers; sustainable supply chain interventions in the palm oil industry; and water purification methods filtering dangerous micropollutants from industrial and wastewater streams are just a few of the research-based solutions to be supported by this funding and by other projects underway in the MIT research community.
