Ekhagastiftelsen Foundation Grant Program: Seeking Applications for Promoting Human Health
Ekhagastiftelsen Foundation is seeking applications for its grant program to promote human health by supporting the development of better food, natural medicines and healing practices, and to support research for a healthier way of life, which in itself may have a disease preventive effect. A central idea is to focus more on preventive active care than reactive care to combat symptoms. The same applies to the agricultural and food areas where the focus should be to find methods that can prevent various problems instead of focusing on their manifestations.
