Our FLexible Interchange Programme (FLIP) supports the movement of people from one environment to a different one to exchange knowledge/technology/skills, developing bioscience research/researchers and addressing our strategic priorities. FLIP awards provide flexible opportunities for individuals ("the interchangers") moving between different organisations, disciplines and sectors at all stages in their career beyond the PhD (or equivalent). Awards typically last up to 24 months, cost up to £150k in total at 80% fEC, be undertaken on a full-time, part-time or intermittent basis, cover a contribution to the salary of the interchangers, reasonable travel and subsistence and costs associated with the interchange.

The purpose of the call is to undertake a literature review and collect data and grower comment across a broad range of aerial Oomycete pathogens in order to identify where there are gaps in our knowledge, and so direct future research and knowledge exchange work programs. It is expected that the proposed review will bring together details of all previously funded AHDB Horticulture (previously known as HDC) work on aerial Oomycetes, but should also review the most recent scientific literature for each crop/pathogen interaction where this is available.
