The Hop Research Council’s primary objective is to fund hop research. Each May the HRC issues a Request for Proposals. The proposals are reviewed at the Summer Meeting and then a final funding decision is made at the Winter Meeting. The HRC is currently in the process of developing a new Research Priorities Plan that will guide our funding decisions going forward. Our Request for Proposal form is also being revised. Both of these items will be available on this website in early 2018.
The Council has two project categories – Special and Ongoing.
Special projects have a funding limit of three years. After the third year the Council has the opportunity to evaluate the project and determine if it should be continued as an HRC Ongoing project.
If you are interested in applying for funding from the council please visit this site in early 2018 for our updated Research Priorities List and Request for Proposal.
Currently we're expanding opportunities to present hop research information (from industry and university researchers) during our 2018 HRC Winter Meeting by introducing a poster session. If you are interested in submitting a poster to this session, please fill in the Poster Registration Form that is attached below.
